Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson are camping at night when Holmes nudges his colleague and says: “Tell me what you see.”
Watson ponders: I see millions of stars.”
”What does that tell you?” says Holmes.
“That there are billions of galaxies and planets; that God is all powerful and that we are insignificant. Why, what does it tell you?”
”Watson, you idiot. Our tent has been stolen.”
Two men are in the woods when one collapses. He’s not breathing, his eyes are blank, so his friend calls 999.
“My friend is dead. What should I do?”
“Stay calm,” says the operator. “First, let’s make sure he’s dead.”
There is silence, then a shot.
“OK,” says the caller. “What now?”
