Is That A Dead Mule I Smell?...Bailout Program

mule Pictures, Images and Photos Curtis and Leroy saw an ad in the Starkville Daily News Newspaper in Starkville, MS. and bought a mule for $100.

The farmer agreed to deliver the mule the next day.

The next morning the farmer drove up and said, "Sorry, fellows, I have some bad news, the mule died last night."

Curtis and Leroy replied, "Well, then just give us our money back."

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

They said, "OK then, just bring us the dead mule."

The farmer asked, "What in the world ya'll gonna do with a dead mule?"

Curtis said, "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 Curtis and Leroy at the Piggly Wiggly grocery store and asked.

"What'd you fellers ever do with that dead mule?"
They said,"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 $898."

The farmer said,"My Lord, didn't anyone complain?"

Curtis said, "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.

Smells....doesn't it?

Limit all United States politicians to two terms.

I hope when every one votes they push some of the bums out.

Love this post!

Maybe we should start electing the middle-class, who don't need to, (and can't), spend millions of dollars in campaigning? Hmmmm... might get us some results! And yep... term limits, without all those perks!

Jas, what a to get all those people that live under rocks to pay attention to what is happening and then vote accordingly.

Hey, flea, wanna run?

Fleapirates said...

Very funny, Sg... think I'll use YOU as a write-in! ;)

As always, Super Granny, your observations are both witty and right on! Washington is full of dead mule traders and it's time to corner those buckeroos and show 'em we're tired of their yarns. I, for one, wish they still sold buggy whips--I'd know just what to do with them! Yee-haw!!!

Supergranny said...

To repay your kind words, I was going to 'send' you my special whip, but this comment box won't let me! Wish I knew how to get that done.
