A Little Humor......
A shepherd was herding his flock in a remote pasturewhen suddenly a brand-new BMW advanced out of the dustcloud towards him. The driver, a young man in a Bronisuit, Gucci shoes, Ray Ban sunglasses and YSL tie,leaned out the window and asked the shepherd,... "If Itell you exactly how many sheep you have in yourflock, will you give me one?"
The shepherd looked at the man, obviously a yuppie,then looked at his peacefully-grazing flock and calmly answered, "Sure."
The yuppie parked his car, whipped out his IBMThinkpad and connected it to a cell phone, then hesurfed to a NASA page on the Internet where he calledup a GPS satellite navigation system, scanned thearea, and then opened up a database and an Excelspreadsheet with complex formulas. He sent an email on his Blackberry and, after a fewminutes, received a response. Finally, he prints out a150 page report on his hi-tech, miniaturized printerthen turns to the shepherd and says, "You have exactly1,586 sheep".
"That is correct, take one of the sheep," said theshepherd.
He watches the young man select one of the animals andbundle it into his car. Then the shepherd says: "If Ican tell you exactly what your business is, will yougive me back my sheep?"
"OK, why not," answered the young man.
"Clearly, you are a consultant" said the shepherd.
"That's correct," says the yuppie, "but how did youguess that?"
"No guessing required," answers the shepherd. "Youturned up here, although nobody called you. You wantto get paid for an answer I already knew, to a question I never asked, and you know nothing about mybusiness...
Now give me back my dog".
