Counting Sheep Office Joke


Office humor from out on the farm:

A shepherd was herding his flocks in a pasture when a brand new Jeep Cherokee pulled up beside him. The driver, a young man in an expensive suit, leaned out of the window and asked the 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 man and then at his flock and calmly answers “sure!” The man 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 complex Excel spreadsheet. He prints out a 150 page report on his hi-tech miniaturized printer, turns to the shepherd and says: “You have exactly 1586 sheep!”

“That’s correct. As agreed, you can take one of the sheep,” says the shepherd. He watches the young man make a selection and bundle it in his Cherokee.
Then he 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.
“This 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 to. And you don’t know anything about my business because you took my dog.
