Gordon's Donkey

Share information, support and advice on all aspects of caring.
A young man named Gordon bought a donkey from an old farmer for £100.

The farmer agreed to deliver the donkey the next day, but when the farmer
drove up he said, 'Sorry son, but I have some bad news... the donkey is on
my truck, but unfortunately he's dead.

Gordon replied, 'Well then, just give me my money back.'

The farmer said, 'I can't do that, because I've spent it already.

Gordon said, 'OK then, well just unload the donkey anyway.

The farmer asked, 'What are you going to do with him?'

Gordon answered, 'I'm going to raffle him off.'

To which the farmer exclaimed, 'Surely you can't raffle off a dead donkey!'

But Gordon, with a wicked smile on his face said, 'Of course I can, I just
won't bother to tell anybody that he's dead.'

A month later the farmer met up with Gordon and asked, 'What happened with
that dead donkey?'

Gordon said, 'I raffled him off, sold 500 tickets at two pounds a piece and
made a huge, fat profit!!'

Totally amazed, the farmer asked, 'Didn't anyone complain that you had
stolen their money because you lied about the donkey being dead?'

To which Gordon replied, 'The only guy who found out about the donkey being
dead was the raffle winner when he came to claim his prize. So I gave him
his £2 raffle ticket money back plus an extra £200, which as you know is
double the going rate for a donkey, so he thought I was great guy!!

Gordon grew up and eventually became the Chancellor of the Exchequer and
then Prime Minister and no matter how many times he lied, or how much money
he stole from the British voters, as long as he gave them back some of the
stolen money, most of them, unfortunately, still thought he was a great guy.

The moral of this story is that, if you think Gordon is about to play fair
and do something for the everyday people of the country for once in his
miserable, lying life, think again my friend, because you'll be better off
flogging a dead donkey.
