Jack and the BailOut

Young Jack in Montana bought a horse from a farmer for $100.
The farmer agreed to deliver the horse the next day.

The next day he drove up and said, 'Sorry son, I have some bad
news; the horse died.'

Jack replied, 'Well, then just give me my money back.'

The farmer said, 'Can't do that. I went and spent it already'

Jack said, 'Ok, then, just bring me the dead horse.'

The farmer asked, 'What ya gonna do with him?

Jack said, 'I'm going to raffle him off.'

'You can't raffle off a dead horse!' the farmer replied.

Jack said, 'Sure I can, Watch me. I just won't tell anybody he's dead.'

A month later, the farmer met up with Jack and asked, 'What
happened with that dead horse?'

Jack said, 'I raffled him off - sold 500 tickets at two dollars
a piece and made a profit of $998.'

The farmer said, 'Didn't anyone complain?'

Jack replied, 'Just the guy who won. So I gave back his two dollars.'

Jack grew up and works now for the government.

He was the one who figured out how to "bail us out."

You both are very Welcome.


I especially like the "Date Night" during a crisis. His word not mine.

I think we need to take a moment and pray that he be given the strength to endure his position.

He without doubt hasn’t the experience to endure it.

Yeah, and of course the media didn't trash him for date night, when you know if Bush did it they'd have been all over him like stink on shit.

As you said on my blog, he doesn't have the experience to manage a McDonald's.
