Enron's humble beginnings.


Nov 27, 2000
First off, if this is a repost, I don't care.

With that out of the way, I got this from a friend today, and I got a kick out of it:

"Once upon a time, a city boy named Kenny, moved to the country and
bought a donkey from an old 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."

Kenny replied, "Well then, just give me my money back."

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

Kenny said, "OK then, at least give me the donkey."

The farmer asked, "What ya gonna do with him?"

Kenny; "I'm gonna raffle him off."

Farmer; " You can't raffle off a dead donkey!"

Kenny; "Sure I can. I just won't tell anybody he is dead."

A month later the farmer met up with Kenny and asked, "What happened with
that dead donkey?"

Kenny; "I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at two dollars a piece and
made a profit of $898."

Farmer; "Didn't anyone complain?"

Kenny; "Just the guy who won. So I gave him his two dollars back."

Kenny grew up and eventually became the chairman of Enron."
