It's the Groaner of the Week!

I don't know where I'll be when y'all read this but I wanted to make sure that at least I got your groooaaannn in -- somebody needs to laugh.

Dr. Watson arrives at 221-B Baker Street and is stunned to find his friend, Sherlock Holmes, out front, wearing an overall, and applying a bright, yellow gloss to the front door.

"Holmes, what the heck are you doing?" asks the curious Watson.

"A lemon entry, my dear Watson," replies Holmes.

Happy Blogging!!!!!!



  1. Do you know that in the entire of Conan Doyle's Holmes "Canon," the phrase "Elementary, my dear Watson" never appears, not even once?

    Holmes does say "elementary" a lot, and fairly frequently says "my dear Watson," but he never says the two juxtaposed. "Elementary, my dear Watson" is as inauthentic as "Play it again, Sam."

  2. Steve: I knew that but I still considered it a worthy groan.

  3. Oh, of course, Kay; the groaner was a good one. It's one of a series: e.g., Holmes goes to Watson to ask for a prescription. "What's the nature of the problem, Holmes?" Watson asks. "Alimentary, my dear Watson." And so on, and so forth...

  4. I think it's a very worthy groan, Kay. I'm sending you another rather cerebral one via email. Watch for it.

  5. Gad. Truly, truly bad.

    Kay--Really, really, really good one!
    Thanks for the groan. It came up from my socks.
