Accountant And Farmer
An accountant was walking on the countryside when he found a shepherd who had a lot of sheep. The accountant said to the farmer:
"Listen farmer, I can guess how many sheep you have.
The farmer started laughing
"Oh, dear! I have a lot of sheep. You will not be able to guess how many there are.
"Lets bet something: if I guess how many sheep you have, you will give me one of your sheep. If I don't, I will pay you $100.
"Ok, how many there are?
"There are exactly 1,354 sheep. The shepherd was shocked:
"Incredible! I really have 1,354 sheep. Well, a bet's a bet. You win. Choose the sheep you want.
"Oh, I will take this one", said the accountant and he took one.
"Wait for a moment, sir", said the shepherd, "Let's do another bet: if I guess what is your job, you will give me back my sheep, and if I don't, you can take another one".
"You are an accountant.
"Oh, God! That's true. But, how do you know it?
"First, give me back my dog, and then I will explain it to you.
