A young man named Chuck bought a horse from a farmer for $250. The farmer agreed to deliver the horse the next day. The next day, the farmer drove up to Chuck’s house and said, “Sorry son, but I have some bad news, the horse died.”
Chuck replied, “Well, then just give me my money back.”
The farmer said, “Can’t do that. I went and spent it already.”
Chuck said, “Ok, then, just bring me the dead horse.”
The farmer asked, “What ya gonna do with him?”
Chuck said, “I’m going to raffle him off.”
The farmer said, “You can’t raffle off a dead horse!”
Chuck said, “Sure I can. Watch me. I just won’t tell anybody he’s dead.”
A month later, the farmer met up with Chuck and asked, “What happened with that dead horse?”
Chuck said, “I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at five dollars apiece and made a profit of $2,495.”
The farmer said, “Didn’t anyone complain?”
Chuck said, “Just the guy who won. So I gave him his five dollars back.”
Chuck grew up and now works for the government.
It’s nice to see someone make a little money but it’s even nicer when said money is earned the old-fashioned way.
The joke above shows how lying to people to get their money might be profitable, but never honorable (H/T Young Conservatives).
Which leads us to the federal government and how they profit much with little honor. Liberals love to preach to us about how to live our lives but then turn around and do the opposite.
It wouldn’t be surprising at all to see some on the left try to raffle off a dead horse just to see how much money they could rake in before the truth was discovered.
It’s truly a sad state of affairs but sometimes the only way to keep from crying is to laugh.
