|Elementary, My Dear Watson
Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson went on a camping
trip. After a good meal and a bottle of wine they lay
down for the night, 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.”
Watson replied, “I see millions and millions of stars.”
“What does that tell you?”
Watson pondered for a minute. “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
and that we are small and insignificant.
Meteorologically, I suspect that we will have a
beautiful day tomorrow. What does it tell you?”
Holmes was silent for a minute, then spoke.”Watson,
you idiot. Someone has stolen our tent.”
