Chairman In The Making

A city boy named Kenny moved to the country and bought a mule from an old farmer for $100. The farmer agreed to deliver the mule to him the next day. But the next day, the farmer drove up in his old truck and told Kenny, "Sorry, son, but I have some bad news, the mule 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 bring me the mule."

The farmer asked, "What ya gonna do with a dead mule?"

Kenny, "I’m going to raffle him off."

The farmer said, "You can’t raffle off a dead mule!"

Kenny said, "Sure I can. Watch me. I just won’t tell anybody he’s dead."

A month later the farmer met up with Kenny and asked, "So, what happened with the dead mule?"

Kenny said, "I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at $2 a piece and made a profit of $898.00."

The farmer said, "Didn’t anyone complain?"

Kenny replied, "Just the guy who won, so I gave him his $2 back.

Kenny grew up and eventually became the chairman of Enron.
