There was a poor man who had inherited a fortune. The one thing he had always wanted was a sports car, so he went down to the local showroom.

Suddenly, just as he's reaching top speed, there's an almighty bang from the engine, and smoke starts pouring from the car.
So he calls the salesman, and explains that is wasn't his fault; something must have been wrong with the car.
The salesman takes some persuading, but the client is extremely rich, so he agrees to let him have another car.
This time, it's a Lotus. Well, the man was driving this new car - top speed down the highway - when once again, there was an huge bang, and the engine leapt three feet out of it's mountings.
The salesman isn't as easy to convince, but... well, this is a rich customer, so... The salesman eventually agrees to give the guy one more chance, but this time he insists that he goes with, so he can see what is going on.
So they drive to the highway, and the man starts accelerating. He shifts the car (it's a Ferarri this time) past fourth gear, to fifth. Then to sixth. The car is going way over the speed limit, but he keeps accelerating.The salesman is holding onto his seatbelt for dear life. He closes his eyes in terror. Then suddenly, the car shakes violently, the engine makes an exploding noise, the car swerves, and finally comes to a halt in a lay-by.
"What did you do??" yells the salesman.
"Well, I was going faster and faster, and I ran out of numbered gears... so I put it into 'R' - for 'Race'."

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.(sherlock: 52 of 64)
Some hours later, Holmes awoke and nudged his faithful friend. "Watson, look up and tell me what you see."
Watson replied, "I see millions and millions of stars."
"What does that tell you?"
Watson pondered for a minute. "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. Theologically, I can see that God is all powerful and that we are small and insignificant. Meteorologically, I suspect that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. Why, what does it tell YOU."
Holmes was silent for a minute, then spoke: "Watson, Someone has stolen our tent."
