"Dr. Watson, I Presume?"

Holmes meets Watson

The other day, while cleaning up and throwing out, I ran across a limerick that I apparently wrote some years ago. I have no memory of it. Maybe that's because it's pretty groan-worthy!

Bad though it may be, the subject matter makes it appropriate for today, which Sherlockians celebrate as the day in which young Sherlock Holmes first met Dr. Watson in the chemical laboratory at St. Bart's hospital in London. Brace yourselves!

Here goes:

There once was a young man at St. Bart's
Who met a doctor from foreign parts.
        "You've bee in Afghanistan," said he
        "Let's rent 221B!"
Thus showing that he had a lot of smarts.

Happy New Year - even though it is always 1895.
