 Political Funny - A West Texas Cowboy
  
A West Texas cowboy was herding his herd 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  AT&T cell phone, and surfs to a NASA page on the Internet, where he calls  up a GPS satellite navigation system to get an e xact 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 i t 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."
