I was born on the prairies, where the wind blew free and there was nothing to break the light of the sun. I was born where there were no enclosures. [GERONIMO]

Crap! Why didn't I think of this before?
Young Gordy lived in Vancouver and bought a donkey from a farmer for $100. The farmer agreed to deliver the donkey the next day. The next day he drove up saying, 'Sorry son, but I have some bad news, the donkey died.'
Gordy replied, "Well, then just give me my money back."
The farmer said, "Can't do that. I went and spent it already."
Gordy said, "Ok, then just bring me the dead donkey."
The farmer asked, "What ya gonna do with a dead donkey?"
Gordy said, "I'm going to raffle him off."
The farmer said, "You can't raffle off a dead donkey!"
Gordy said, "Sure I can. I just won't tell anybody he's dead."
A month later, the farmer met up with Gordy and asked, "What happened with that dead donkey?"
Gordy said, "I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at $2 each and I made a profit of $898."
The farmer said, "Didn't anyone complain?"
Gordy said, "Just the guy who won, so I gave him his $2 back."
Gordy now works for the government.
Geronimo's Take:Now that's lateral thinking at work!
