~The Mule~

Brothers Hughie & Teddy saw an ad for a mule in the Starkville Daily News in Starkville, MS. Bein' in need of a mule, they bought it for $100. The farmer agreed to deliver the mule once he received their check in the mail.

A week goes by; the farmer drives over to Hughie & Teddy's & says, "Sorry, fellas, I have some bad news. The mule died last night."

Hughie & Teddy replied, "Well that's too bad. Just give us our money back."

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

They said, "OK. Just bring us the dead mule."

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

Hughie said, "We gonna raffle him off."

The farmer said, "You can't raffle off a dead mule!"

Teddy said, "Shore we can! Heck, we don't hafta tell nobody he's dead!"

A few weeks later, the farmer ran into Hughie & Teddy at the Piggly Wiggly, "Hey. What'd you fellas ever do with that dead mule?"

Surprised at his ignorance, they said, "We raffled him off like we said we wuz gonna do."

Hughie said,"Shucks, we sold 500 tickets fer $2.00 a piece & made a net profit of $898.00"

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

Teddy said, "Well, the feller who won got upset. So we gave him his two dollars back."

Hughie & Teddy now work for the Obama Administration.

Brothers Hughie and Teddy were walking out in the country near Starkville, MS, and came across an outhouse.

Teddy opened the door to the outhouse and looked down into the hole, and exclaimed, 'Hey Hughie, they's a quarter down thar!'

Hughie came over and looked down the hole, and verified that indeed a quarter was clearly visible, sticking out through the disgusting ooze.

Hughie then took out his wallet, took a dollar bill out and threw it down the hole, then proceed to crawl through the hole to retrieve the money.

Before Hughie got very far, Teddy said, 'Hughie, why in tarnation did you do that?' And Hughie turned and explained to Teddy, 'you didn't think I was gonna crawl down thar fer just a quarter, did ya?'

Both Hughie and Teddy now work on the Obama economic team.

I think that my husband knows a slightly different version of this joke. Anyway, it's one of Mr. AOW's favorite jokes. He's become more political now that's he's around me more of the time.

Brooke said...

HA! That sounds about right.

Susannah said...

Fuzz! You're welcome, of course.

AOW~ Ha! I love it~ Hope you both enjoyed this one.

Brooke~ About right indeed!

Jamie~ Welcome! And thanks for the follow! I had this saved in a 'draft' in my posts list...I think originally my Dad sent it to me through email. I'm certain it has made many rounds through cyber-space.

Do come back any time!
