Innocuous manipulation; or is it?...

I know that I have acquired three to four regular readers and I know I have not been writing as of late (nothing of substance anyway) and for that I apologize. Well, here is more writing without substance; but, it made me laugh when I needed a smile so I thought I would share.

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. 
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 
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.
