A young, clever man bought a horse from a farmer for $250. The farmer agreed to deliver the horse the next day.

But the next day, the farmer drove up to the man’s house with a piece of disappointing news. He told the young man: “Sorry son, but I have some bad news, the horse died.”

“Well, then just give me my money back,” replied the disappointed man.

The farmer said: “Can’t do that. I spent it already.”

The young man replied: “Ok, then, just bring me the dead horse.”

 “What are you going to do with him?” the farmer asked.

The man said: “I’m going to raffle him off.”

The farmer said: “You can’t raffle off a dead horse!”

The man answered: “Sure I can. Watch me! I just won’t tell anybody he’s dead.”

A month later, the farmer met up with the man and asked: “What happened with that dead horse?”

The man said: “I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at five dollars a piece and made a profit of $2,495.”

“Didn’t anyone complain?” the farmer asked.

The man answered: “Just the guy who won. So I gave him his five dollars back.”

This bonus joke will keep you laughing for more.

A shoplifter walked into a high-end jewelry store. Oblivious to the eyes of the security guard following him, the shoplifter wandered around waiting for perfect timing. Eventually, he pocketed an exclusive watch.

The security guard caught the shoplifter red-handed and presented him to the manager. The guard put the watch on the table between them.

"Listen," said the shoplifter. "I don't want any trouble and I know you don't want any trouble either. What do you say I just buy the watch, and we forget all about this?"

The manager looked at the shoplifter suspiciously. Finally, he took pity on the criminal, saying, "Fine. But you must never return to my store ever again."

The thief agreed. The manager then showed the shoplifter the price. When he saw the slip, the thief went pale.

He turned to the manager and said,

"This is a little more than I intended to spend. Can you show me something less expensive?"
