Thanks to JLVeer for sending this one!

A cowboy was herding his cows in a remote 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...
  
   Now give me back my DOG."
