A city boy moved to the country and bought a mule from an old farmer.
The farmer agreed to deliver the mule the next day.
The next day, the farmer drove up and said, "Sorry, but I have some bad news.  The mule died."

"Well, then just give me my money back."

"Can't do that.  I went and spent it already."

"OK, then.  Just unload the mule."

"What ya gonna do with him?"

"I'm going to raffle him off."

"You can't raffle off a dead mule!"

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

A month later the farmer met up with the city boy and asked,
"Whatever happened with that dead mule?"

"I raffled him off.  I sold a hundred tickets at two dollars a piece and made a ninety-eight dollar profit."

"Didn't anyone complain?"

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

Hmmm... I don't think Kimmel lets us hold raffles (because of the "no gambling" rule). Otherwise, I have a 286 that probably qualifies as a dead mule.
