funny one

FW: THE COWBOY

> A cowboy named Bud was overseeing his herd in a remote mountainous pasture
> in California 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, RAYBAN 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?\'
>
> BUD 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 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 Bud.
>
> 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 BUD 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 Bud.
>
> \'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.
