October Joke of the Month: Consultants


A man walks into a Silicon Valley pet store looking to buy a monkey.

The store owner pointed towards three identical looking monkeys in politically-correct, animal-friendly, natural mini-habitats.

"The one on the left costs $500," said the store owner.

"Why so much?" asked the customer.

"Because it can program in C," answered the store owner.

The customer inquired about the next monkey and was told, "That one costs $1500, because it knows Visual C++ and Object-Relational technology."

The startled man then asked about the third monkey. "That one costs $3000," answered the store owner.

"3000 dollars!!" exclaimed the man. "What can that one do?"

To which the owner replied, "To be honest, I've never seen it do a single thing, but it calls itself a Consultant."
