The Cowboy!

A cowboy named Bud was overseeing his herd

in a remote mountainous pasture in Montana 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 tell you exactly how many cows and calves you have in your herd, will

you give me a calf?"

Bud looks at the man, who obviously is 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 exportsit 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

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


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

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

"No guessing required." answered the cowboy. "You showed up here

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.

Now give me back my dog.
