Curtis & Leroy saw  an ad in the Starkville Daily News Newspaper
in Starkville,  MS. and  bought a mule for  $100.

The farmer agreed to deliver the mule the next  day...

The next morning the farmer drove up and  said, "Sorry, fellows,
I have some  bad news, the mule died last night."

Curtis & Leroy  replied, "Well, then just give us our money back."

The farmer said, "Can't do that. I went and spent it already.."


They said, "OK then, just bring us the dead mule."

The farmer asked, "What in the world ya'll gonna do with a dead
mule?"

Curtis said, "We gonna raffle him off."

The  farmer said, "You can't raffle off a dead mule!"

Leroy said, "We shore can!  Heck, we don't hafta tell nobody he's dead!"

A couple of weeks later, the farmer ran into Curtis &Leroy at the
Piggly Wiggly grocery store and asked.

"What'd you fellers ever do with that dead mule?"

They said,"We raffled him off  like we said we wuz gonna do."

Leroy said,"Shucks, we sold 500 tickets fer two dollars apiece
and made a profit of $998."

The farmer said,"My Lord, didn't anyone complain?"

Curtis said, "Well, the feller who won got upset. So we gave
him his two dollars back."
