Boudreaux left Newfoundland and moved to Toronto 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, "I'm sorry, but I have some bad news... the donkey died last night."
"Well, den" said Boudreaux, "Jus' give my money back, yeah."
"I can't do that Sir, I went and spent it already."
"OK, den. Jus' unload dat donkey."
"What are you gonna do with him?"
"I'm gon-to raffle him off."
"You can't raffle a dead donkey, you dumb Newfie!"
"Well dats where you wrong. You wait you an' you learn how smart we Newfie's are!"
A month later the farmer ran into the Newfie and asked, "What happened with that dead donkey?"
"I raffled dat donkey off. I sold 500 tickets at two dollars apiece and made $998."
"Didn't anyone complain?"
"Just dat guy who won. So I gave him his two dollars back."
