A cowboy named Bud was overseeing his herd in a remote mountainous
in California when suddenly a brand-new BMW advanced out of a dust
towards him. The driver, a young man in a Armani suit, Gucci shoes,
and YSL tie, leans out the window and asks the cowboy, "If I tell
exactly how many cows and calves you have in your herd, Will you
give me a calf?"

Bud looks at the man, obviously a yuppie, then looks at his
grazing herd and calmly answers, "Sure, Why not?"

The yuppie parks his car, whips out his Dell notebook computer,
connects it
to his Cingular RAZR V3 cell phone, and surfs to a NASA page on the
where he calls up a GPS satellite to get an exact fix on his
location which
he then feeds to another NASA satellite that scans the area in an
ultra-high-resolution photo.

The young man then opens the digital photo in Adobe Photoshop and
exports it
to an image processing facility in Hamburg , Germany . Within
seconds, he
receives an email on his Palm Pilot that the image has been
processed and
the data stored. He then accesses a MS-SQL database through an ODBC
Excel spreadsheet with email o n his Blackberry and, after a few
receives a response.

Finally, he prints out a full-color, 150-page report on his hi-Tech
Miniaturized HP LaserJet printer and finally turns to the cowboy and
says, "You have
exactly 1,586 cows and calves."

"That's right. Well, I guess you can take one of my calves," says
Bud. He
watches the young man select one of the animals and looks on amused
as the
young man stuffs it into the trunk of his car.

Then Bud says to the young man, "Hey, if I can tell you exactly what
business is, will you give me back my calf?"

The young man thinks about it for a second and then says, "Okay, why

"You're a Congressman for the U.S. Government", says Bud.

"Wow! That's correct," says the yuppie, "but how did you guess that?"

"No guessing required." answered the cowboy. "You showed up here
even though
nobody called you; you want to get paid for an answer I already
knew, to a
question I never asked. You tried to show me how much smarter than
me you are;
and you don't know a thing about cows...this is a herd of sheep. . .

Now give me back my dog.
