Title:     good guess

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, Cerrutti shoes, Ray-Ban
glasses, and a YSL tie gets out and asks the sheperd:

- If I guess how many sheep you do have, you give me one of them? 
The shepherd looks at the young man, then looks at the sheep which graze and
- All right. 
The young man parks the car, connects the notebook and the mobile, enters a
NASA site, scans the ground using his GPS, opens a data base and 60 Excel
tables filled with algorithms, then prints a 150-pages report on his
high-tech mini-printer. He then turns to the shepherd and says:

- You have exactly 1586 sheep here. 
The shepherd answers: 
- That's correct, you can have your sheep. 
The young man takes the sheep and puts in the back of his jeep. 
The sheperd looks at him and asks: - If I guess your profession, will you
return my sheep to me? 
The young man answers: 
- Yes, why not. 
The shepherd says: 
- You are an Arthur Andersen consultant! 
- How did you know? asks the young man. 
- Very simple, answers the shepherd: 
- First, you come here without being called. Second, you charge me a sheep
to tell me something I already knew. Third, you do not understand anything
about what I do, because you took my dog!
