Young Chuck

Young Chuck, moved to Texas and bought a Donkey from a farmer for $100.00.
The farmer agreed to deliver the Donkey.
The next day he drove up and said, sorry son, but I have some bad
news, the donkey 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 donkey.' 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 donkey!'
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 donkey?' Chuck said,
'I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at two dollars a piece and made a profit of $898.00.'
The farmer said, 'Didn't anyone complain?'
Chuck said, 'Just the guy who won. So I gave him his two dollars back.'

Chuck now works for the government.

Less 100.00 for the dead donkey...and 2.00 refund for the winner = 898.00 profit

Advanced math ;)

No, Chuck is a TEXAN! Didn't you read the first line of the tale?

Hell, if two Texans were stranded on the moon, they'd get rich selling rocks to each other, all the while raising 12 kids apiece...then some smart Hindi'd come along, buy those rocks wholesale, sell 'em retail, and make a fat profit too.
