Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson went on a camping trip. After a good meal and a bottle of wine they lay down for the night and went to sleep.
Some hours later Holmes woke up and nudged his friend; “Watson, look up and tell me what you see?” Watson replied “I see millions of stars.” “So what does that tell you asked Holmes?”
Watson pondered for a moment. “Astronomically it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and billions of planets. Astrologically, I observe that Saturn is in Leo. Horologically, I deduce that the time is about a quarter past three. Theologically, I can see that the universe is magnificent and that we are insignificant. Meteorologically, I think it will be a beautiful day tomorrow. What does it tell you?”
Holmes was silent for a moment and then spoke; “Watson, you idiot. Someone’s stolen the tent!”
