Wanting to earn some additional cash, the young man chose to hire himself out as a handyman. He then began canvassing a nearby well-to-do neighborhood. 

He went to the front door of the first house and inquired as to whether he had any odd jobs for him to do. The owner told him that he needs someone to paint his porch. "How much will you charge me?" he asked.

To which the young man quickly replied, "How about $50?"

The owner agreed and told him that the paint and all that he would need are in the garage.

The owner's wife heard the discussion. She told her husband, "Does he realize that our porch goes all the way around the house?"

The husband just shrugged and went off on his way. A short time later, the young man came to the door to gather his cash.

"You're finished already?" asked the owner.

"Yes," the young man answered, "and I had paint leftover, so I gave it two coats."

The owner was impressed and immediately reached into his pocket for the $50 and gave it to him. 

"And by the way," the young man added, "it's not a Porch, it's a Lexus."

If you roared in laughter, here's another one that will crack you up some more. A young man bought a horse from a farmer for $250.

The farmer agreed to deliver the horse the next day. However, 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."
