    An attractive young thing met her maiden aunt downtown for lunch one afternoon and during the meal, the older woman asked her niece to deposit a paycheck for her at the bank where the girl worked. On her way back from work, the girl was accosted by a purse snatcher.
    "Help, help," she screamed at a passing cop. "That man has taken my aunt's pay! He's taken my aunt's pay!"

    "OK, lady," said the cop. "Cut out the pig Latin and tell me exactly what happened."



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    A shepherd was herding his flocks in a remote pasture when suddenly a brand new Jeep Cherokee advanced out of a dust cloud towards him. The driver, a young man in a Brioni suit, Gucci shoes, Ray Ban sunglasses and a YSL tie leaned out of the window and asked our shepherd: "If I can tell you exactly how many sheep you have in your flock, will you give me one?" The shepherd looks at the yuppie, then at his peacefully grazing flock and calmly answers "sure!" The yuppie parks the car, whips out his notebook, connects it to a cell-phone, surfs to a NASA page on the Internet where he calls up a GPS satellite navigation system, scans the area, opens up a database and some 60 Excel spreadsheets with complex formulas. Finally he prints out a 150 page report on his hi-tech miniaturized printer, turns round to our shepherd and says: "you have here exactly 1586 sheep!"
    "This is correct. As agreed, you can take one of the sheep" says the shepherd. He watches the young man make a selection and bundle it in his Cherokee.

    Then he says: "If I can tell you exactly what your business is, will you give me my sheep back?"

    "Okay, why not" answers the young man. "You are a consultant" says the shepherd.

    "This is correct" says the yuppie, "How did you guess that?"

    "Easy" answers the shepherd. "You turn up here although nobody called you. You want to be paid for the answer to a question I already knew the solution to. And you don't know @$#% about my business because you took my dog."

    About a half mile north of where the old firestation used to be before I torched it to a pile of smoldering ash

    Pig Latin is a made up language in where basicly you take the first letter of the word and move it to the end followed by an "ay". The cop would have heard it as "antspay" or pants when translated. Still doesn't make much sence though...
