Gordon Brown and the donkey....


A young man named Gordon bought a donkey from an old farmer for £100.00.
The farmer agreed to deliver the donkey the next day, but when the
farmer drove up he said, "Sorry son, but I have some bad news... the donkey is on my truck, but unfortunately he's dead."
Gordon replied, "Well then, just give me my money back."
The farmer said, "I can't do that, because I've spent it already."
Gordon said, "OK then, just unload the donkey anyway."
The farmer asked, "What are you going to do with him?"
Gordon answered, "I'm going to raffle him off."
To which the farmer exclaimed, "Surely you can't raffle off a dead
But Gordon, with a wicked smile on his face said, "Of course I can, you
watch me. I just won't bother to tell anybody that he's dead."
A month later the farmer met up with Gordon and asked, "What happened
with that dead donkey?"
Gordon said, "I raffled him off, sold 500 tickets at two pounds a piece,
and made a huge, fat profit!!"
Totally amazed, the farmer asked, "Didn't anyone complain that you had
stolen their money because you lied about the donkey being dead?"
To which Gordon replied, "The only guy who found out about the donkey
being dead was the raffle winner when he came to claim his prize. So I gave
him his £2 raffle ticket money back plus an extra £200, which as you know
is double the going rate for a donkey, so he thought I was a great guy!!"
Gordon grew up and eventually became the Chancellor of the Exchequer,
and no matter how many times he lied, or how much money he stole from the British voters, as long as he gave them back some of the stolen money, most of them, unfortunately, still thought he was a great guy.
The moral of this story is that, if you think Gordon is about to play
fair and do something for the everyday people of the country for once in
his miserable, lying life, think again my friend, because you'll be better
off flogging a dead donkey!!!


That's an old one, but it still brings a smile to my otherwise sodden face!

What an aposite story relating to a lying, cheating, disaffected, dysfunctional, discredited man.
