As Recommended by Grandmère Mimi of The Wounded Bird Blog

Aha! I knew it. Sounds right to me!

Little Johnnie in Montana bought a horse from a farmer for $100.

The farmer agreed to deliver the horse the next day.

The next day he drove up and said, 'Sorry son, but I have some bad news, the horse died.'


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

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

Johnnie said, 'Ok, then, just bring me the dead horse.'


The farmer asked, 'What ya gonna do with him?

Johnnie said, 'I'm going to raffle him off.'

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

Johnnie said, 'Sure I can, Watch me. I just won't tell any body he's dead.'


A month later, the farmer met up with Johnnie and asked,

'What happened with that dead horse?'

Johnnie said, 'I raffled him off.

I sold 500 tickets at two dollars a piece and made a profit of $898..'

The farmer said, 'Didn't anyone complain?'

Johnnie said, 'Just the guy who won. So I gave him his two dollars back.'


Johnnie grew up and works now for the government.

He was the one who figured out how to "bail us out".
