This story gave me a good laugh, thought I would share it. It was sent to me in an e-mail:
A cowboy named Bud was overseeing his herd in a remote
mountainous pasture in California, when suddenly a brand-new BMW advanced
toward him out of a cloud of dust.
The driver, a young man in a Brioni suit, Gucci shoes, RayBan sunglasses
and YSL tie, leaned out the window and asked the cowboy, "If I tell you
exactly how many cows and calves you have in your herd, Will you give me a
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 an 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, 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 with
amusement as the young man stuffs it into the trunk of his car.
Then the 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
"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 used millions of dollars worth of equipment
trying to show me how much smarter than me you are; and you don't know a
thing about how working people make a living - or about cows, for that
matter. This is a herd of sheep.
Now give me back my dog.
Very clever. That's what happens when your computer is smarter than you are.
I really enjoyed it! I'm glad you both liked it also. Now, give me back my dog. LOL
I really enjoyed th dog twist at the end! Very funny, thumbs up.
In a similar line:
A helicopter pilot is flying through New York with a passenger. Suddenly realising he's lost, he flies up and hovers outside a large tower block.
He peers in a window and sees some office staff hard at work, so holds up a large sign saying "Where am I?," to which an employee holds up a sign saying "You're in a helicopter outside a large tower block."
"It's all right, we're at the Microsoft building," stated the pilot to his passenger. "How did you know we were outside the MS building?"
"It's easy really. The sign that employee held up was factually correct, but otherwise utterly useless."
Good one LG, but I don't know whether to laugh or just nod my head in agreement.
It would be funny if it were a joke, that kind of feeling?
