humor: oct 10 -- The Farmer's Dead Mule
Nick's G-Rated Humor List
From: Tom Ervin <ervint@U.Arizona.EDU>
... who probably doesn't approve of the
ethics of this crafy old farmer.....
The old farmer's mule had finally died of old age just before
spring planting, so the farmer made a trip to town to buy
His $125 didn't buy much, but he was satisfied with his
purchase and he made arrangements to return the next day
with a horse trailer to pick up the mule and the dealer
agreed to keep it overnight for him.
Early the next day, the old man returned. "Jim," said the
mule dealer, "That old mule died last night. I'm real sorry
to have to tell you this. I know you were counting on it for
your spring garden." The dealer offered Jim his money back,
but Jim said a bargain was a bargain, loaded the mule on his
truck and left.
A couple of months later the mule dealer happened to drive
by Jim's place and was astonished to see Jim working his
garden on a *NEW* $4,000 garden tractor. Honking his horn,
he called Jim over and asked him how in the world he had
managed to buy a tractor when not to long ago all he had
was the $125 that he'd spent on the mule that died.
"Well", Jim explains, "After leaving with the mule, I had this
idea. So I stopped off at the local print shop and had 2,000
$2 raffle tickets printed up. Grand prize: Gardening
Equipment. I sold all the raffle tickets to people around
"Yeah, but where did you get the gardening equipment?"
"No, I mean the equipment you had as the raffle prize."
"I got it from you."
"Jim, all you got from me was a dead mule."
"I know, that's what I raffled off."
"My Goodness, Jim! You raffled off a dead mule as gardening equipment?!
I'll bet that really made a lot of people mad when they found out about it."
"Naw, not really, the only one really ticked off was the winner, and I gave
him his money back."
A man took his Rottweiler to the vet and said to him, "My dog's
cross-eyed. Is there anything you can do for it?"
"Well" said the vet "let's have a look at him."
So he picks the dog up by the ears and has a good look at its eyes.
"Well," says the vet "I'm going to have to put him down."
"Just because he's cross-eyed?" say's the man.
The vet answers, . . . "No, because he's heavy."
Q: What do you call a short psychic
who escapes from prison?
A: A small medium at large.
