THE CURRENT BANKING CRISIS EXPLAINED‚  ‚  
‚  

Paddy bought a donkey from a farmer for $100.‚  

The farmer agreed to deliver the donkey the next day.


The next day he drove up and said, ‘Sorry son, but I have some bad news. The donkey’s died.’‚  

‚  
Paddy replied, ‘Well then just give me my money back.’‚  

‚  
The farmer said, ‘Can’t do that. I’ve already spent it.’‚  

‚  
Paddy said, ‘OK, then, just bring me the dead donkey.’‚  

‚  
The farmer asked, ‘What are you going to do with him?’‚  

‚  
Paddy said, ‘I’m going to raffle him off.’‚  

‚  
The farmer said, ‘You can’t raffle a dead donkey!’‚  

‚  
Paddy said, ‘Sure I can. Watch me. ‚  I just won’t tell anybody he’s dead.’‚  

‚  
A month later, the farmer met up with Paddy and asked, ‘What happened with that dead donkey?’‚  

‚  
Paddy said, ‘I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at‚  a toonie‚  a piece and made a profit of $898′‚  

‚  
The farmer said, ‘Didn’t anyone complain?’‚  

‚  
Paddy said, ‘Just the guy who won. ‚  So I gave him his two dollars back.’ ‚  

‚  
Paddy now works for CIBC

Thanks to my family back in England for forwarding this internet joke to me. Couldn’t help but pass it on.
