Lagniappe: Holmes the busybody!

"I know you, you scoundrel! I have heard of you before. You are Holmes the meddler."

My friend smiled.

"Holmes the busybody!"

His smile broadened.

"Holmes the Scotland Yard jack-in-office."

Holmes chuckled heartily. "Your conversation is most entertaining," said he.
Arthur Conan Doyle, The Adventure of the Speckled Band
That story is in The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes which I've begun rereading for an upcoming episode of A Good Story is Hard to Find. I love these stories so much!
