Everyone deserves to enjoy clean political jokes - I like to call them Jokes With A Jab - and boy, do we need that today!
Curt and Leroy saw an ad in the Starkville Daily News in Starkeville, Mississippi, and decided to buy a mule for $100. The farmer who owned the mule agreed to deliver it the following day.
The next morning, the farmer drove up and said, "Sorry, fellows - I have some bad news. The mule died last night."
"Well, then - just give us our money back," Leroy said.
The farmer replied, "Can't do that. I went and spent it already."
"Ok then, the men replied. Just bring us the dead mule."
The farmer replied, "What in the world ya'll gonna do with a dead mule?"
Curt replied, "We gonna raffle him off." The farmer said, "You can't raffle off a dead mule!" Leroy said, "We shore can! Heck, we don't hafta tell nobody he's dead!"
A couple of weeks later, the farmer ran into Leroy and Curt at the Piggly Wiggly grocery store and asked, "What'd you fellers ever do with that dead mule?"
They replied, "We raffled him off like we said we wuz gonna do." Leroy said, "Shucks, we sold 500 tickets fer two dollars apiece and made a profit of $998."
The farmer asked, "Didn't anyone complain?"
Curtis replied, "Well, the feller who won got upset. So we gave him his two dollars back."
Curtis and Leroy now work for the government. They're overseeing the Bailout Program.
