Flogging a dead donkey
Jack sold a donkey to his friend Fred,
He delivered the donkey but sadly it was dead.
Fred thought,"Oh no I'm a hundred quid worse off !"
Then he said,"Great I think I'll raffle him off."
"You can't raffle a dead donkey ,that's wrong Fred !"
"Sure I can I won't tell them he's dead."
All went well ,he sold 500 tickets at 2 quid apiece,
And made 898 quid profit from a donkey that was deceased.
"Didn't anyone complain ,"said Jack.
"Just the guy who won,so I gave him his money back."
