Lemon Entry my Dear Watson

imageSherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson go on a camping trip, set up their tent, and fall asleep. Some hours later, Holmes wakes his faithful friend.

‘Watson, look up at the sky and tell me what you see.’

Watson replies, ‘I see millions of stars.’

‘What does that tell you?’

Watson ponders for a minute.’ Astronomically speaking, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, it tells me that Saturn is in Leo. Time wise, it appears to be approximately a quarter past three. Theologically, it’s evident the Lord is all-powerful and we are small and insignificant. Meteorologically, it seems we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. What does it tell you?

Holmes is silent for a moment, then speaks. ‘Watson, you idiot, someone has stolen our tent.’

One thought on “Lemon Entry my Dear Watson

  1. I don’t know if you knew, but this joke was voted the best in the world.

    This by virtue of the fact that it is the most ‘translate-able’ joke. The basic premise of the joke works in almost any language. Yet more proof that we’re all basically the same.

    Enjoy your promenade.
