    Happy Sherlock joke

    Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson go on a camping trip. After a good dinner and a bottle of wine, they retire for the night, and go to sleep.
    Some hours later, Holmes wakes up and nudges his faithful friend. Watson, look up at the sky and tell me what you see.
    I see millions and millions of stars, Holmes replies Watson.
    And what do you deduce from that?
    Watson ponders for a minute. Well,
    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.
    Meteorologically, I suspect that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow.
    Theologically, I can see that God is all powerful, and that we are a small and insignificant part of the universe.
    But what does it tell you, Holmes?
    Holmes is silent for a moment.
    Watson, you idiot! he says. Someone has stolen our tent! xD

    Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson are taking a trip across a desert by hot-air balloon. There are not many landmarks; so eventually, they become lost. Luckily, while flying quite low, they see a man.

    Holmes shouts, "Sir, could you please tell me where we are?"

    The man looks up, ponders for a moment, and then answers, "Gentlemen, you are in a hot-air balloon!"

    At this moment, a burst of wind picks up the balloon and carries it away.

    Holmes turns to Watson and asks: "My friend, do you know who that man is?"

    "No, Holmes, of course not!"

    "He's a mathematician!"

    "Holmes, that's incredible! But *how* do you know?"

    "It's very simple, Watson. First of all, the man thought before giving us an answer. Secondly, his answer was absolutely correct. And thirdly, the answer he gave us was of no practical use, whatsoever!"

    haha!! I like this one
    here have another-
    Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, creator of the fictional detective Sherlock Holmes, purportedly told of a time when he climbed into a taxi cab in Paris. Before he could utter a word, the driver turned to him and asked, "Where can I take you, Mr. Doyle?"

    Doyle was flabbergasted. He asked the driver if he had ever seen him before.

    "No, sir," the driver responded, "I have never seen you before." Then he explained, "This morning's paper had a story about you being on vacation in Marseilles. This is the taxi stand where people who return from Marseilles always come to. Your skin color tells me you have been on vacation. The ink-spot on your right index finger suggests to me that you are a writer. Your clothing is very English, and not French. Adding up all those pieces of information, I deduced that you are Sir Arthur Conan Doyle."

    "This is truly amazing!" the writer exclaimed. "You are a real-life counter-part to my fictional creation, Sherlock Holmes!"

    "There is one other thing," the driver said.

    "What is that?"

    "Your name is on the front of your suitcase."

    Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson are busy with yet another complicated case. Suddenly, Holmes seizes a chunk of blood-spattered limestone from the ground.
    "What is it, Holmes?" asks Watson, eagerly.
    Holmes turns and replies, gravely, "It's sedimentary, my dear Watson."
