A tourist walked into a pet shop and was looking at the animals on
display. While he was there another customer walked in and said to the
shopkeeper "I'll have a C-monkey please". The shopkeeper nodded, went
over to a cage at the side of the shop, and took out a monkey. He fit a
collar and leash and handed it to the customer, saying "That'll be
$5000".

The customer paid and walked out with his monkey. Startled, the tourist
went over to the shopkeeper and said, "That was a very expensive monkey
most of them are only a few hundred dollars. Why did it cost so much?"

The shopkeeper answered, "Ah, that monkey can program in C - very fast,
tight code, no bugs, well worth the money."

The tourist looked at the monkey in another cage. "That one's even more
expensive - $10,000! What does it do?" "Oh, that one's a C++ monkey; it
can manage object-oriented programming, Visual C++, even some Java. All
the really useful stuff," said the shopkeeper.

The tourist looked around for a little longer and saw a third monkey in
a cage of its own.The price tag around its neck read $50,000. He gasped
to the shopkeeper, "That one costs more than all the others put
together! What on earth does it do?"

The shopkeeper replied, "Well, I haven't actually seen it do anything,
but it says it's a consultant."
