Raffles are a great way to try out your luck. There's a chance to win the big prize or get stuck with something useless. Here are a couple of jokes on raffles and their outcomes.
It was the week of Christmas and, Tom, Dick, and Harry went into town to enjoy the Christmas spirit. They sat down in a bar and were enjoying some drinks.
The trio noticed a charity raffle with a "Guaranteed prize" and decided to buy a ticket each.

The winners were announced a day before Christmas Eve, and all three of them got a prize. Tom won the first prize, a year's supply of gourmet spaghetti sauce.
Dick won the second prize of a six month supply of extra-long gourmet spaghetti.
Unfortunately, Harry was stuck with the sixth prize -- a toilet brush.

They decided to celebrate their victories and Christmas Eve together in Harry's house. Tom would bring the spaghetti sauce, Dick would bring the spaghetti, and Harry would play host.
After a lovely Turkey and Spaghetty dinner, the three sat down in front of the TV and discussed some sports.
A few minutes later, Dick told Tom, "That sauce was amazing, great thing you have a steady supply."

"I know right, but it's nothing without your spaghetti," Tom replied. The two looked at Harry and said, "How's the toilet brush working?"
Harry looked at them with confidence and said, "Well, it's good and all, but I'm thinking of returning it and getting some toilet paper instead."
Time for a bonus joke! How do you make a profit off of a dead horse? Jhonny knows exactly how.

Jhonny was waiting on a delivery from a farmer. He had bought a wonderful horse.
But unfortunately, the farmer comes up to Jhonny's house and says, "I'm sorry, Jhonny, I can't deliver the horse to you."
Jhonny becomes sad but then asks for his money back. The farmer says, "I can't do that either, you see, I already spent the money."
Jhonny then asks for the dead horse. The farmer gasps and asks, "What are you going to do with a dead horse?"

"I'm going to raffle it!" he said. The farmer was taken aback by Jhonny's reaction and said, "You can't raffle off a dead horse!"
Jhonny let out a mischevious smile and said, "Of course I can, just don't tell anyone that the horse is dead."
The following day, the farmer delivers the horse, and Jhonny hosts the raffle.
To his surprise, Jhonny rolls up to the farmer's barn with a brand new horse. "How on earth did you manage to sell a dead horse?" the farmer asked.

"I held a raffle for $5 a ticket," he said. Seeing as there was more than meets the eye there, the farmer asked, "Didn't anyone have a problem with it?"
Jhonny said, "The guy who won did. I just gave him back his $5."
Had a good laugh? Well here's another joke about a retiring farmer who was trying to sell his animals. Enjoy!
