  A shepherd was herding his flocks in a remote pasture when 
  suddenly a brand new Jeep Cherokee advanced out of a dust 
  cloud towards 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 asked our shepherd: "If I can tell you 
  exactly how many sheep 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 "sure!" 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, 
  opens up a database and some 60 Excel spreadsheets with complex 
  formulas.   
       
  Finally he prints out a 150 page report on his hi-tech mini-
  aturized printer, turns around to the shepherd and says: "you 
  have here  exactly 1586 sheep!" "That is correct,  take one of 
  the sheep"  says the shepherd.  He watches the young man select 
  an animal and bundle it in his Cherokee.  
  
  Then the shepherd says: "If I can tell you exactly what your 
  business is, will you give me my sheep back?" "Okay, why not!" 
  answers the young man. "You are a consultant" says the shepherd.  
  
  "That is correct" says the yuppie, "How did you guess that?" 
  "Easy" answers the shepherd.  "You turn up here although nobody 
  called you, you want to be paid for the answer to a question I 
  already knew the solution of, and you don't know anything about 
  my business because you took my dog.
