A young man bought a horse from a farmer for $250. The farmer promised that the horse would be delivered to him the next day, and the man agreed.
The next day, the farmer drove to the man's house, but without the horse. The man was disappointed that the farmer did not come with the horse and asked him why.

The farmer, with a sad look on his face, told the young man that the horse died. At this, the man asked that the farmer should refund his money, but the farmer said it was not possible for him to do so because he spent it already.
The young man, with a sigh, asked the farmer to bring him the dead horse. Perplexed at this request, the farmer asked the man:
"What are you going to do with him?"
The man smiled and said he would raffle the horse off, but the farmer objected, telling him that it was impossible to raffle off a dead horse.
The man disagreed with the farmer, insisting that he could do just that, only that he would not tell anybody that the horse was dead.
A month passed, and the farmer met with the young man again. He asked him what happened with the dead horse. The man revealed to the farmer that he raffled the horse off as he told him earlier.
He further said that he sold 500 tickets at $5 each, making a profit of $2,495. The farmer was shell-shocked at this and asked the man if no one complained. The young man replied:
"Just the guy who won. So I gave him his five dollars back."
Here is a bonus joke that will get all laughing: A man was sitting in his house when he heard a knock on the door. When he opened the door, the man saw a snail seated at the entrance of his house.

The man picked the snail up, throwing it as far as he could and slamming his door shut. Three years passed, and the man heard a knock on his door.
He opened the door and, to his surprise, found the same snail from three years ago at the entrance of his home. The snail asked the man:
"What was that all about?"
