    > > A cowboy named Bud was overseeing his herd in a remote mountainous pasture in California when suddenly a brand-new BMW advanced toward him out of a cloud of dust.
    > >
    > > The driver, a young man in a Brioni suit, Gucci shoes, RayBan sunglasses and YSL tie, leaned out the window and asked the cowboy, "If I tell you 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 peacefully 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 Internet, 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 an MS-SQL database through an ODBC connected Excel spreadsheet with email on his Blackberry and, after a few minutes, receives a response.
    > >
    > > Finally, he prints out a full-color, 150-page report on his hi-tech, miniaturized HP LaserJet printer, 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 with amusement 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 your business is, will you give me back my calf?"
    > >
    > > The young man thinks about it for a second and then says, "Okay, why not?"
    > >
    > > "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 used millions of dollars worth of equipment trying to show me how much smarter than me you are; and you don't know a thing about how working people make a living - or about cows, for that matter. This is a herd of sheep. ......
