Holmes, Watson, Stars


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 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


Why, what does it tell YOU?"

Holmes was silent for a minute, then spoke.

"Watson, you idiot. Some jerk has stolen our tent."
