Weekend Joke: Sherlock Holmes

Thanks again to Seth for this one!
Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson went camping in the forest. After a good dinner and a bottle of wine, they went to sleep in the tent.

Several hours later, Holmes awoke and nudged his faithful friend, Watson.

"Look at the sky and tell me what you see."

Watson answered: "I see millions and millions of stars."

"And what does that tell you?"

Watson thought a minute and answered: "Astronomically, that tells me that there are potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, I see that Saturn is in Leo. Chronologically, I deduce that it is approximately three ten AM. Theologically, I see that God is all powerful and that we are small and insignificant. Meteorologically I suspect that we shall have a beautiful day tomorrow."

Holmes was quiet for a minute and then said: "Watson, you are an idiot. Someone stole our tent."


  1. Good one!

    May I know your favorite onscreen Sherlock Holmes..


  2. I've heard this joke 20 years ago in Russia! So good to know that good jokes travel around, and can jump over the language barrier! :)

  3. Buddy - Michael Caine in Without a Clue and Benedict Cumberbatch in the BBC One Holmes series.

  4. Very funny, but I must point out that right now Mars is in Leo, not Saturn.

  5. Michael Caine as Holmes - I need to check this movie. Thanks for the heads up!
