I randomly write any topic about health here which I find interesting and informative. Wealth topic is also published here so that you will get some ideas on how to earn money too. Health and Money Awareness are my objectives in writing in this blog.

Rumor has it....

A city boy, let's call him Ben, moved to the country
and bought a donkey from an old farmer for $100.00.

The farmer agreed to deliver the donkey the next day.

The next day the farmer drove up and said, "Sorry son,
but I have some bad news, the donkey died last night."

Ben replied: "Well then, just give me my money back."

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

Ben said: "OK then, just unload the donkey."

The farmer asked: "What ya gonna do with him?"

Ben: "I'm going to raffle him off."
(Note: To raffle is to sell a thing by lottery - draw
lot - to a group of people each paying the same amount
for a ticket)

Farmer: "You can't raffle off a dead donkey!"

Ben: "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 donkey?"

Ben: "I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at two
dollars a piece and made a profit of $998.00."

Farmer: "Didn't anyone complain?"

Ben: "Just the guy who won. So I gave him back his
two dollars."

Rumor has it that Ben grew up and eventually became
the chairman of a very big US company..?!? !?!?.....

of course, rumor has it too that the said company
evetually collapsed under his watch....hmmm. ...
