How to Be a Crooked BusinessmanKenny was a city boy who moved to the country and bought a donkey from an old farmer for $100.00. The farmer agreed to deliver the donkey the next day. The next day the farmer drove up and said, “Sorry son, but I have some bad news. The donkey has died.”Kenny replied, “Well then, just give me my money back.” The farmer said, “Can't do that. I went and spent it already.” Kenny said, “OK then, just unload the donkey.” The farmer asked, “What ya goanna do with him?” Kenny replied, “I'm going to raffle him off.” The farmer responded, “You can't raffle off a dead donkey!” Kenny said, “Sure I can. Watch me. I just won't tell anybody he is dead.”A month later the farmer met up with Kenny and asked, “What happened with that dead donkey?” Kenny replied, “I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at two dollars a piece and made a profit of $898.00.”The farmer asked, “Didn't anyone complain?” Kenny said, “Just the guy who won. So I gave him his two dollars back.” Kenny grew up and eventually became the chairman of Enron.invest4freedom
