Subject: How Many Cows
>A farmer named Sam was overseeing his herd in
> a remote hilly pasture in Hereford when suddenly a brand-new
> BMW advanced toward him out of a cloud of dust.
> The driver, a young man in a Brioni® suit, Gucci® shoes,
> RayBan® sunglasses and YSL® tie, leaned out the window and
> asked the farmer, “If I tell you exactly how many cows

> Sam looks at the man, who obviously is a yuppie, then looks
> at his peacefully grazing animals and calmly answers,
> “Sure, why not?”
> The yuppie parks his car, whips out his Dell® notebook

> The young man then opens the digital photo in Adobe

> He watches the young man select one of the animals and looks

> Then Sam says to the young man, “Hey, if I can tell you

> The young man thinks about it for a second and then says,
> “Okay, why not?”
> “You’re a Member of the European Parliament”,
> says Sam.
> “Wow! That’s correct,” says the yuppie,
> “but how did you guess that?”
