Mule For Sale
Jim & Frank saw an ad in the Sulphur Springs News Newspaper in Sulphur Springs, Texas and bought a mule for $100. The farmer agreed to deliver the mule the next day.
The next morning the farmer drove up and said, "Sorry, fellows, I have some bad news, the mule died last night."
Jim & Frank replied, "Well, then just give us our money back."
The farmer said, "Can't do that. I went and spent it already"
They said, "OK, then, just bring us the dead mule."
The farmer asked, "What in the world ya'll gonna do with a dead mule?"
Jim said, "We gonna raffle him off."
The farmer said, "You can't raffle off a dead mule!"
Frank said, "We shore can! Heck, we don't hafta tell nobody he's dead!"
A couple of weeks later, the farmer ran into Jim & Frank at the Walmart grocery store and asked.
"What'd you fellers ever do with that dead mule?"
They said,"We raffled him off like we said we wuz gonna do."
Frank said,"Shucks, we sold 500 tickets fer two dollars apiece and made a profit of $898."
The farmer said,"My Lord, didn't anyone complain?"
Jim said, "Well, the feller who won got upset. So we gave him his two dollars back."
