A DISCIPLE KNOWS HIS FATHER


A shepherd was looking after his sheep one day on the side of a deserted road, when suddenly a brand new Porsche screeches to a halt.


The driver, a man dressed in an Armani suit, Timberland shoes, Versace designer sunglasses, A Rolex watch, and a Pierre Cardin tie, gets out and asks the shepherd, "If I can tell you how many sheep you have, will you give me one of them?" The shepherd looks at the young man, and then looks at the large flock of grazing sheep and replies: "Okay."


The young man parks the car, connects his laptop to his mobile, scans the ground using his Global Positioning System receiver, opens a database with 60 Excel tables filled with logarithms and pivot tables, and then prints out a 150-page report on his high-tech mini-printer. He turns to the shepherd and says, "You have exactly 1,586 sheep here."


Rather surprised the shepherd replies, "That’s correct, you can have your sheep." The young man takes an animal and puts it in the back of his Porsche.


Just as the man is about to drive off, the shepherd asks him, "If I guess your profession, will you return my animal to me?" The young man answers, "Yes, why not?"


The shepherd says, "You are an IT consultant." "How did you know?" asks the young man.


"Very simple," answers the shepherd. "Firstly, you came here without being called. Secondly, you charged me a fee to tell me something I already knew, and Thirdly, you don’t understand anything about my business. (Pause) Now please can I have my DOG back?"
