Need a laugh? Look no further!
This one had me laughing out loud, literally!
Shepherd and the Yuppie
A shepherd was herding his flock in a remote pasture when suddenly a brand new Mercedes SUV advanced out of a cloud of dust toward him.
The driver, a young man in a Brioni suit, Gucci shoes, Armani sunglasses and a YSL tie, leaned out 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 yuppie, then at his peacefully grazing flock and calmly answered “Sure!”
The yuppie parked the SUV, whipped out his laptop, connected it to a cell-phone data link, surfed to a NASA page on the Internet where he called up a GPS satellite navigation system, scanned the area, opened up a database and some 60 spreadsheets of complex formulas.
Finally he printed out a 150 page report on his miniaturized printer, turned to the shepherd and said, “You have exactly 1,586 sheep!”
“That’s correct!” said the shepherd. “As agreed you can take one of the sheep.”
He watched as the young man made a selection and bundled it into his SUV. Then he added, “If I can tell you exactly what your business is will you give me my animal back?”
“Okay, why not.” answered the young man.
“You are a construction project consultant.” said the shepherd.
“You’re right.” answered the yuppie. “How did you guess that?”
“Easy.” replied the shepherd. “You turned up here, even though nobody called you. You wanted to be paid for information that I already knew. And you don’t know *#@! about my business because you just took my dog.”
