Joke: Sherlock Holmes

Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson went on a camping trip. After a good meal and a bottle of wine they were exhausted 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. By observing its position, I deduce that the time is approximately a quarter past three. Theologically, I can see that Our Lord is all powerful and that we are small and insignificant. Meteorologically, I suspect that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow."

Watson paused, then asked his friend: "Why? What does it tell you?"

Holmes was silent for a minute before speaking. "Watson, you idiot, someone has stolen our tent."
