Catchin' Up

After two weeks of bein' sick as a fe-lyin', AHM is in catch-up mode. Things'll be slow considerin' she's gotta' play catch-up at work too, but fortunately she's got friends who email her interestin' stuff. Considerin' the tragedy that just occurred in Congress, this tidbit is not as funny as it should be.

A young lad named Ben from Genesee, ID bought a horse from a farmer
for $100. The farmer agreed to deliver the horse the next day. The next day, the farmer drove up and said, "Sorry son, but I have some bad news. The horse died, today."

Ben replied, "Just give me my money back."

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

"OK, then, just bring me the dead horse," Ben said.

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

"I'm going to raffle him off."

The farmer said, "You can't raffle off a dead horse!" the farmer replied.

Ben said, "Sure I can. Watch me. I just won't tell anybody he's dead."

A month later, the farmer met up with Ben and asked, "What happened with that dead horse?"

"I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at $2 apiece and made a profit of $898," Ben explained.

"Didn't anyone complain?" the farmer asked.

"Just the guy who won. So I gave him his $2 back."

Ben grew up and now works for the government. He's the one who figured out how this bailout is going to work.

Be back soon…
