    Default Global Financial Crisis Explained!

    Young Chuck moved to Texas and bought a donkey from a farmer for $100.00. 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 died.'

    Chuck replied, 'Well, then just give me my money back.'

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

    Chuck said, 'OK, then, just bring me the dead donkey.'

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

    Chuck said, 'I'm going to raffle him off.'

    The farmer said 'You can't raffle off a dead donkey!'

    Chuck said, 'Sure I can Watch me. I just won't tell anybody he's dead.'

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

    Chuck said, 'I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at two dollars apiece and made a profit of $898.00.'

    The farmer said, 'Didn't anyone complain?'

    Chuck said, 'Just the guy who won. So I gave him back his two dollars.'

    Chuck now works for Bank of America

    Haha, good one. Hope you don't mind me using that one.... I'll pay you $2

    Here's a clip that may educate the rest of you about the 'crisis of credit' (if you haven't seen it yet).
