The current banking crisis explained (humour)

Young Stelios bought a donkey from a farmer for €100. The farmer agreed to deliver the donkey the next day.

The next day he drove up and said, ‘Sorry son, but I have some bad news. The donkey’s died.’

Stelios replied, ‘Well then just give me my money back.’

The farmer said, ‘Can’t do that. I’ve already spent it.’

Stelios said, ‘OK, then, just bring me the dead donkey.’

The farmer asked, ‘What are you going to do with him?’

Stelios said, ‘I’m going to raffle him off.’

The farmer said, ‘You can’t raffle a dead donkey!’

Stelios said, ‘Sure I can. Watch me. I just won’t tell anybody he’s dead.’

A month later, the farmer met up with Stelios and asked, ‘What happened with that dead donkey?’

Stelios said, ‘I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at €2 each and made a profit of €898′

The farmer said, ‘Didn’t anyone complain?’

Stelios said, ‘Just the guy who won. So I gave him his €2 back.’

Stelios now works as an executive in a Greek bank
