Bud was enjoying the view of the beautiful scenery with his herd when a young man in an exotic vehicle drove up to him. The man tried to outsmart Bud and gain a calf for himself.


Bud, a cowboy, was looking after his herd. They were at a remote hilly pasture in California and enjoying the beautiful scenery. Suddenly, a brand-new BMV drove towards him, leaving a dusty cloud.

The BMW driver was a young man, clad in a Brioni suit, which he matched with Gucci shoes and accessorized with Rayban sunglasses and a YSL tie.

The driver asked Bud, "If I tell you exactly how many cows and calves you have in your herd, will you give me a calf?" Bud looked at the driver and his grazing herd and agreed to give the man a calf if he guessed right. 

The man parked his car and brought out his Dell notebook laptop. He connected to his high-tech cell phone and surfed the internet for a NASA page. He called up a GPS satellite so that he could track his exact location. 

He fed the information to another NASA satellite that scanned the area in an ultra-high-resolution image. He opened the photo in his Adobe Photoshop and transferred it to an image processing facility in Germany.

He received an email on his Palm Pilot notifying that the image had been processed and the data stored. The man accessed an MS-SQL database on his Blackberry phone and was responded to within a few minutes. 


After all the processes, the young man printed out a full-color 150-page report on his HP LaserJet printer. He turned to Bud and told him he had 1,586 cows and calves. 


Bud confirmed that was the correct answer and told the man he could take one of his calves. Trying hard to control his laughter, he watched as the young man struggled to stuff the animal into his car trunk.

The cowboy then asked the young man if he would give him back his calf if he tells him his exact occupation. The man agreed to the challenge. 

Bud thought for a second and told the young man that he was a US congressman. The man was shocked and asked him how he guessed easily.

Bud told him that he did not need to guess. He said, "you want to get paid for an answer I already knew, to a question I never asked." He continued: 

You used millions of dollars worth of equipment trying to show me how much smarter than me you are…"

Bud further told the man that he did not know about cows or how working people make a living. The cowboy further told the man that he did not have a herd of cows but sheep. Finally, Bud said to the man:

 "Now give me back my dog."
