just got this:

A shepherd was herding his flock in a remote pasture when suddenly a
brand-new BMW advanced out of a dust cloud towards him. The driver, a
young
man in an Armani suit, Gucci shoes, RayBan sunglasses and YSL tie,
leans
out the window and asks the shepherd, "If I tell you exactly how many
sheep
you have in your flock, will you give me one?"

The shepherd looks at the man, obviously a yuppie, then looks at his
peacefully grazing flock and calmly answers, "Sure. Why not?"

The young man parks his car, whips out his Dell notebook computer,
connects
it to his AT&T cell phone, surfs to a NASA page on the Internet, where
he
calls up a GPS satellite navigation system 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 connected Excel spreadsheet with hundreds of
complex formulas. He uploads all of this data via an 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 and finally turns to the shepherd and
says,
"You have exactly 1586 sheep."

"That's right. Well, I guess you can take one of my sheep," says the
shepherd. 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 the
shepherd says to the young man, "Hey, if I can tell you exactly what
your business is, will you give him back to me?"

The young man thinks about it for a second and then says, "Okay, why
not?"

"You're a consultant," says the shepherd.

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

"No guessing required," answered the shepherd. "You showed up here even
though nobody called you; you want to get paid for an answer Ialready
knew;
to a question I never asked; and you don't know crap about my
business..

Now give me back my dog."
