The next day, the Bajan farmer drove up and said, “Sorry, but I have some bad news. The donkey dead”. The Jamaican said, “Well dat alrite, just gi mi, mi money back”.

Bajan farmer replies, “Can’t do that. I spend the money already.

The Jamaican says, “Ok, den. Just leave the donkey wid me”.

“What are you going to do with it?” The Bajan farmer asked.

The Jamaican responds, “A goin raffle de donkey”.
