|Border Collie Rescue - The Working Sheepdog|
Scottish sheep farmer was tending his flock when a flash motor pulled up
and out stepped a smooth businessman in a Yves St Laurent suit, Gucci
shoes and a Cartier watch.
"If I can count how many sheep you have got on these hills, can I keep one?" he asked the bemused shepherd. "Aye, on ye go son." said the old boy.
The stranger flipped open his laptop, used his mobile to dial into a NASA satellite site and programmed in a colour differential scan that would detect white shapes against the green hillsides. After 10 minutes tapping into the laptop he finally announced - "You have 11,236 sheep spread over 16.06 square miles. Am I correct?" When the shepherd nodded the man gleefully began putting an animal into his car.
"Wait." said the shepherd. "If I can tell you what you do for a living, can I get my animal back?" The man nodded. "Your a company consultant." the shepherd said. "Why, yes, I am." said the shocked stranger. "How did you know that?"
"Well." said the shepherd, "You arrive here uninvited and want to be paid to tell me something I already know and didn't even ask. On top of all that, you obviously know absolutely nothing about my business in the first place."
"NOW - CAN I HAVE MY ****** COLLIE BACK?"
