Hope you all enjoy this!!!!

Once upon a time there was a shepherd looking after

his sheep on the side of a deserted road. Suddenly a

brand new Porsche screeches to a halt.

The driver, a man dressed in an Armani suit, Ray-Ban

sunglasses, TAG-Heuer wrist-watch, and a Pierre Cardin

tie, gets out and asks the Shepherd: "If I can tell

you how many sheep you have, will you give me one of


The shepherd looks at the young man, and then looks at

the large flock of grazing sheep and replies: "Okay."

The young man parks the car, connects his laptop to

the mobile-fax, scans the ground using his GPS, opens

a database and 20 Excel tables filled with logarithms

and pivot tables, then prints out a 50 page report on

his high-tech mini-printer. He turns to the shepherd

and says, "You have exactly 1,586 sheep here."

The shepherd cheers," That's correct, you can have

your sheep."

The young man makes his pick and puts it in the back

of his Porsche.

The shepherd looks at him and asks: "If I guess your

profession, will you return my animal to me?"

The young man answers, "Yes, why not". The shepherd

says, "You are an IT consultant ".

"How did you know?" asks the young man.

"Very simple," answers the shepherd. "First, you came

here without being called. Second, you charged me a

fee to tell me something which I already knew, and

third, you don't understand anything about my

business... Now can I have my *DOG* back?"
