A man bought a horse from a farmer for $2000 and the farmer promised to deliver the horse the following weekend. He went to the man's home and said, "I am afraid I have bad news. The horse died."

The man said, "Sorry to hear that. Please give me my money back."

The farmer said, "I would like to, but I have already spent it."

The man said, "Well, in that case, give me the horse."

"What are you going to do with a dead horse?" asked the farmer.

"I plan to hold a raffle for the horse," said the man.

The farmer said, "Who is going to buy a raffle ticket for a dead horse?"

"I won't mention that the horse is dead," said the man.

A few weeks later, the farmer met the man and asked, "How did your raffle go?"

"Fine," said the man, "I sold 500 tickets for $50 each and made just under $25,000."

The farmer was very surprised and asked, "Didn't you get a lot of complaints?"

The man said, "Just one, from the guy who won, so I gave him his money back."
