Sherlock Holmes Joke: Sherlock Holmes and Watson go camping

 Sometimes we all need a bit of silliness so I hope you don't mind if I post the odd Sherlock Holmes joke or two here on occasion. This is apparently the world's second funniest joke too.

Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson go on a camping trip, and after finishing their dinner they get inside their sleeping bags 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" exclaims Watson.

"And what do you deduce from that?" say Holmes. 

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. What does it tell you, Holmes?"

"Watson, you idiot!" Holmes exclaims, "Somebody's stolen our tent!"
