    A shepherd was tending his flock in a remote pasture
    when suddenly a brand-new Jeep Cherokee appeared out
    of a dust cloud, advanced toward him and stopped.
    The driver, a 20-something fella wearing a Brioni
    suit, Gucci shoes, Ray Ban sunglasses, and a YSL
    tie, leaned out of the window and asked the
    shepherd, "If I can tell you exactly how many sheep
    you have in your flock, will you give me one?"
    The shepherd looked at the young guy, then at his
    peacefully grazing flock, and calmly answered,

    The young man parked his car, whipped out his
    notebook computer, connected it to a cell phone,
    surfed to a NASA page on the Internet where he
    called up a GPS satellite navigation system, scanned
    the area, then opened up a database and some Excel
    spreadsheets with complex formula. He finally
    printed out a 15-page report on his hi-tech
    miniaturized printer, turned around to our shepherd
    and said, "You have here exactly 1,586 sheep!"

    "Amazing! That's correct! Like I agreed, you can
    have one of my sheep," said the shepherd.
    The shepherd watched the man make a selection and
    bundle it into his Cherokee. When he was finished
    the sheepherder said, "If I can tell you exactly
    what your political persuasion is and who you work
    for, will you give me back my sheep?"

    "Okay, why not," answered the young man.

    "You're a Democrat and you're working for Jesse
    Jackson," said the shepherd.

    "Wow! That's correct," said the young man. "How did
    you ever guess that?"

    "Easy," answered the shepherd. "Nobody called you,
    but you showed up here anyway. You want to be paid
    for providing a solution to a question I already
    knew the answer to. And you clearly don't know
    squat about what you're doing. Now . . . can I have
    my dog back?"

    Love it! :D
