​Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Camping Trip…

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 jerk. Someone has stolen our tent.”

PS : i didn’t write this story myself. i read it somewhere and now can’t remember the source.
