    Default The cowboy and the yuppie

    A Montana cowboy was overseeing his herd in a remote mountainous
    pasture
    when suddenly a brand-new BMW advanced out of a dust cloud towards
    him.

    The driver, a young man in a Brioni suit, Gucci shoes, Ray Ban
    sunglasses and YSL tie, leans out the window and asks the cowboy, "If
    I tell you exactly how many cows and calves you have in your herd, will you give me a calf?"

    The cowboy looks at the man, obviously 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 navigation
    system 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
    exports it 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 a 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 and finally 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 the
    cowboy.

    He watches the young man select one of the animals and looks on amused
    as the young man stuffs it into the trunk of his car.

    Then the cowboy 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
    not?

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

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

    "No guessing required." answered the cowboy.

    "You showed up here even though nobody called you; you want to get paid
    for an answer I already knew, to a question I never asked. You tried
    to show me how much smarter than me you are; and you don't know a thing
    about cows. .this is a herd of sheep.

    Now give me back my dog.

    Very good.
    Quality outweighs quantity every time.
