whiteshark: Once upon a time there was a shepherd looking after his sheep on the edge of a deserted road. Suddenly a brand new Jeep Cherokee screeches to a halt next to him.
The driver, a young man dressed in a Brioni suit, with Cerutti shoes, Ray-Ban sunglasses and a YSL tie gets out and asks the shepherd: <If I guess how many sheep you do have, would you give me one of them?> The shepherd looks at the young man, then looks at the sheep- <All right.> He says.
The young man parks the car, connects the notebook and the mobile, enters a NASA site, scans the ground using his GPS, opens a database and 60 Excel tables filled with algorithms, then prints out a 150-page report on his high-tech mini-printer. <You have exactly 1586 sheep> <Correct,> says the shepherd. <You may take your sheep.> The man takes the sheep and puts it in the back of his car.
The shepherd asks, <If I guess your profession and employer, can I have the sheep back?> <Why not,> answers the man. <You're an Andersen Consultant<>>, says the shepherd. <How did you guess?>
<Very simple,> replies the shepherd.
<First you come here without being called.
<Secondly, you charge me to tell me something I already knew.
<And thirdly, you do not understand anything about what I do - <you took my dog!>>>>
