chairman of Enron

Recommended Posts

A city boy, Kenny, 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 died last night."


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 gonna do with him?"


Kenny : "I'm going to raffle him off." (Note : To raffle is to sell a thing by lottery - draw lot - to a group of people each paying the same amount for a ticket).


Farmer : "You can't raffle off a dead donkey!"


Kenny : "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,

"What happened with that dead donkey?"


Kenny : "I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at two dollars a piece and made a profit of $898.00."


Farmer : "Didn't anyone complain?"


Kenny : "Just the guy who won. So I gave him back his two dollars."


Kenny grew up and eventually became the chairman of Enron.
