Curtis & Leroy saw an ad in the Kentville Advertiser Newspaper in Kentville , N.S. and bought a mule for $100.
The farmer agreed to deliver the mule the next day.
The following morning the farmer drove up, and said: "Sorry, fellers, I have some bad news for you, the mule died last night."
Curtis & Leroy replied; "Well then, just give us our money back."
The farmer said; " Can't do that...I went and spent it already."
They said; "Okay then, just bring us the dead mule."
The farmer asked; "What in the world ya'll gonna do with a dead mule?"
Curtis said; "We gonn'a raffle him off."
The farmer said; "You can't raffle off a dead mule!"
Leroy said; "We shore can! Heck, we don't hafta tell nobody he's dead!"
A couple of weeks later, the farmer ran into Curtis & Leroy at the Co-Op grocery store and asked: "Say...what'd you fellers ever do with that dead mule?"
Curtis, said; "We raffled him off like we said we wuz gonn'a do."
Leroy added; "Shucks, we sold 500 tickets fer two dollars a piece and made a profit of $898."
The farmer said; "My Lord, didn't anyone complain...?"
Curtis said; "Well, the feller who won was really upset. So we gave him his two dollars back."
Curtis and Leroy now work for the government.
They're overseeing Canadian Prime Minister Harper's investigation of the Senate and the spending scandal.
