A bloke is driving around in his Porsche in the countryside. He stops outside a field full of sheep, walks up to the shepherd and says
"I've got an offer. I'll guess how many sheep you've got in this field, and if I guess right, I get to take a sheep with me. If I guess wrong, you get my car."

The shepherd thinks he's on to a sure thing and agrees.

"137" says the driver. "Damn me, you're right.", says the shepherd and dutifully hands over a sheep.

The man walks away, stuffs the sheep in his car, and is about to drive away when the shepherd knocks on his window. "I've got a proposal for you." says the shepherd. "If I can guess what you do for a living, I get to take your car. If I'm wrong, you can have all my sheep."

"Done", says the driver

"You're a consultant.", says the shepherd. "Bloody hell, how did you guess?"

"Easy. You come in here uninvited, you tell me what I already know, and then you charge me for it."

"Well, we usually structure the project up front, and charge $5,000 for three questions", replied the consultant.

"Isn't that awfully steep?" asked the man.

"Yes," the consultant replied, "and what was your third question?"

A contractor dies on in a fishing accident on his 40th birthday and finds himself greeted at the Pearly Gates by a brass band. Saint
Peter runs over, shakes his hand and says "Congratulations!"

"Congratulations for what?" asks the contractor.

"Congratulations for what?" says Saint Peter. "We are celebrating
the fact that you lived to be 160 years old."

"But that's not true," says the consultant. "I only lived to be forty."

"That's impossible," says Saint Peter, "we added up your time sheets."
