Paddy bought a camel from a farmer for $100; the farmer agreed to deliver the camel the next day.
The following morning, the farmer arrived without the camel. “Sorry son, but I have some bad news — the camel’s dead.”
Paddy replied: “Well, just give me my money back, then.”
The farmer said: “Can’t do that; I’ve already spent it.”
Paddy came back: “Okay then, just bring me the dead camel.”
“What are you going to do with it?” queried the farmer.
Paddy: “I’m going to raffle it.”
“You can’t raffle a dead camel,” exclaimed the farmer.
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 camel?”
“I raffled him,” said Paddy. “I sold 500 tickets at $2 each and made a profit of $898.”
The farmer asked: “Didn’t anyone complain?”
Paddy replied with a grin: “Just the guy who won — so I gave him his $2 back.”
Paddy now works for the Commonwealth Bank, but has just received an offer of employment by two blokes named Turnbull and Morrison who have offered him a job as a financial planner in the Department of Treasury in Canberra.
