You might be a Goat Dairy Owner if.............
A shepherd was herding his flocks in a remote pasture when suddenly a new Jeep Grand Cherokee flashes out of a dust cloud toward him. The driver, a young man in a Brioni suit, Gucci shoes, Ray Ban sunglasses, and a YSL tie leaned out of the window and asks our shepherd: "If I can tell you exactly how many goats you have in your flock, will you give me one'?"
The shepherd looks at the yuppie, then at his peacefully grazing flock and calmly answers, "Why not?"
The yuppie parks the car, whips out his notebook, connects it to a cell phone, surfs to a NASA page on the Internet where he calls up a GPS satellite navigation system, scans the area, and opens up a database and some 60 Excel spreadsheets, with complex formulas. Finally, he prints out a 150 page report on his hi-tech, miniaturized printer, turns round to our shepherd, and says: "You have exactly 1,586 goats!"
"That's correct. As agreed, you can take one of the goats," says the shepherd. The shepherd watches, as the yuppie makes a selection and bundles it into his Grand Cherokee. Then, the shepherd says to the yuppie, "If I can tell you exactly what your business is, will you give me my goat back?"
"Why not?" answers the smart young man.
"You are a consultant," says the shepherd.
"That's correct," says the yuppie, "But how did you guess that?"
"It was easy. You turn up here, although nobody called you. You want to be paid for the answer to a question, to which I already knew the solution. And you don't know sh - - about my business, because you took my dog."
