A young cowboy went to a liverystable to buy a horse. The stable owner said, "I'm sorry, son, but the horse died."
"I'll take him anyway," the young cowboy said.
"What are you going to do with a dead horse?"
"I'm going to raffle him off."
"Well, I never heard of raffling off a horse, especially if it's dead," the stable owner scoffed.
Several days later, the stable owner saw the young cowboy downtown. The stable owner asked how the raffle went.
"I made $998," the young cowboy said.
"You got $998 for a dead horse?" the stable owner gasped, "Didn't anyone complain?"
"Yep, the guy who won," the young cowboy said, "So I gave him back his $2."
