Young Padraic from Roscommon bought a donkey from a farmer for €100 The farmer agreed to deliver the donkey the next day.

The next day the farmer drove up and said, 'sorry son, but I have some bad news, the donkey died.'
Young Padraic replied, 'well, then just give me my money back...'

The farmer said, 'can't do that. I went and spent it already..'
Young Padraic said, 'OK, then, just bring me the dead donkey.'
The farmer asked, 'what ya gonna do with him?
Young Padraic said, 'I'm going to raffle him off.'
The farmer said, 'you can't raffle off a dead donkey!'
Young Padraic said, 'sure I can, watch me. I just won't tell anybody he's dead.'

A month later, the farmer met up with Young Padraic and asked, 'what happened with that dead donkey?'
Young Padraic said, 'I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at €2 apiece and made a profit of €898'
The farmer said, 'didn't anyone complain?'
Young Padraic said, 'just the guy who won. So I gave him back his €2'

Young Padraic became an investment broker for Anglo Irish Bank.
