Boudreaux And The Donkey

Boudreaux left the bayou and moved to Arkansas where he bought him a donkey from an old farmer for $100.

The farmer agreed to deliver the donkey the next day.

The next day, the farmer drove up and said, "I'm sorry, but I have some bad news. The donkey died last night".

"Well, den" said Boudreaux, "jus' give my money back, yeah."

The old farmer replied "I can't do that sir, I went and spent it already."

"Ok, den. Jus' unload dat donkey." said Boudreaux.

"What are you gonna do with him?" asked the puzzled old farmer.

"I'm gon-to raffle him off." replied Boudreaux.

"You can't raffle a dead donkey, you dumb Cajun!" exclaimed the old farmer.

"Well dats where you wrong!! You wait you an' you learn how smart we Cajuns are!" replied Boudreaux.

A month later the old farmer ran into the Cajun and asked, "What ever happened with that dead donkey?"

"I raffled dat donkey off. I sold 500 tickets at two dollars apiece and made $998." proudly exclaimed Boudreaux.

"Didn't anyone complain?" asked the old farmer.

Boudreaux replied "Just dat guy who won. So I gave him his two dollars back."
