You Knucklehead...

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 house later, Holmes awoke and nudged his faithful friend. "Watson, look up at the sky and tell me what you see." Watson replied, "I see millions and millions of start." Holmes asked again of his friend, "What does that tell you?" Watson pondered for a minute. "Astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of plants. Astrologically, I observe that Saturn is in Leo. In respect to time, I deduce the time at this precise moment to be approximately a quarter past three. Theologically, I see that God is all powerful and that we are small and insignificant. Meteorologically, suspect that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. What does it tell you?" Holmes was silent for a minute, then spoke. "Watson, you knucklehead. Someone has stolen out tent!"
