Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson were going camping. They pitched their tent under the stars and went to sleep. Sometime in the middle of the night Holmes woke Watson up and said: “Watson, look up at the stars, and tell me what you see.”
Watson replied: “I see millions and millions of stars.”
Holmes said: “and what do you deduce from that?”
Watson replied: “Well, if there are millions of stars, and if even a few of those have planets, it’s quite likely there are some planets like earth out there. And if there are a few planets like earth out there, there might also be life.”
And Holmes said: “Watson, you idiot, it means that somebody stole our tent.”
Sherlock Holmes & Watson go to a Rock Museum.
They walk around for a while when Watson notices that there is a rock that doesn't have a display name.
"What kind of rock is that?" he asked Sherlock.
"Sedimentary, my dear Watson!"
Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson are hiking. They hiked all day long andthen, having gotten tired, unpacked and quickly retired.Holmes wakes up deep into the night, wakes Watson and says "Watson, do yousee the bright stars and do you notice how clear the sky is? What can youdeduce from it?"Watson yawns and tries to play the game. "Well, this clearly tells us theweather tomorrow is going to be dry and sunny.""No, my friend. It's much simpler than that. Someone has stolen our tent."
Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson went on a camping trip. After a good meal, they lay down and went to sleep. Some hours later, Holmes awoke and nudged his faithful friend. "Watson, look up at the sky and tell me what you see!"
"I see millions of stars," Watson said. "What does that tell you?" Holmes asked.
Watson replied. "Astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, I observe that Saturn is in Leo. Horologically, I deduce that the time is approximately a quarter past three. Theologically, I can see that God is all-powerful. Meteorologically, I suspect we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. What does it tell you, Holmes?"
"Watson, you idiot," he said. "Someone has stolen our tent!"
Sherlock Holmes & Dr. Watson were on safari, trekking through the jungle when Watson noted, scrutinized and classified a here-to-fore unrecorded phenomenon: a large, warm, moist pile of... something. A few yards down the elephant trail, Watson encountered another of these new finds. Then another. Then another.
"I say, Holmes, what do you make of these?" Watson inquired.
And the sleuth replied, "Alimentary, my Dear Watson, alimentary."
When they got back to London, Watson and Holmes made their way back to Baker Street. Standing outside number 221B, Holmes asked Watson if he had noticed if anything had changed while they had been away. Watson stared at the building for a long, long time before exclaiming.
"Good Lord, Holmes! Mrs Hudson's had the house repainted."
