Chuckle of the Week

Sherlock Holmes awakened Dr. Watson and asked him what the sky told him.

Watson: "I see millions and millions of stars."

Homes: "And what do you deduce from that?"

Watson: "It tells me there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, I observe Saturn is in Leo. Horologically, I deduce the time is a quarter past three. Meteorologically, I suspect we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. Theologically, I can see God is all-powerful and that we are a small and insignificant part of the universe. What does it tell you, Holmes?"

Holmes is silent for a moment, then says: "Watson," you idiot, "someone has stolen our tent."
