Flying Punch Line


MARCUS:  Hey, Buddy, can you teach me how to tell a joke?

BUDDY:  Of course, Marcus.  I'm an expert.

CYNDI:  You are?  I haven't heard any of us tell a good one yet.

BUDDY:  Well, sit down and prepare to learn.  Have either of you ever heard of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson?

MARCUS:  Sure, they have their own television show.

BUDDY:  No, not the imposters on TV.  The original Sherlock and Holmes from Baker Street in London, England.

CYNDI:  No, I haven't heard of them.  Who are they?

BUDDY:   Holmes was a great detective, quite famous for solving mysteries.  Watson was his trusted sidekick. Holmes' powers of deduction were quite sharp.

MARCUS:  So we're going to solve a mystery?

BUDDY:  Yes, we are.  You see, Holmes and Watson went camping.  They pitched their tent under the stars and were soon snoring away.

CYNDI:  And a bear came into camp looking for food?

BUDDY:  No, in the early hours of the morning, Sherlock woke Watson and said, "Look up at the stars and tell me what you see."

MARCUS:  So what did he see?  The Big Dipper pouring chocolate on the Milky Way?

BUDDY:  Watson told Holmes he saw millions and millions of stars.

MARCUS:  Millions?  Is that more than twenty?

CYNDI:  It sure is.  Probably a hundred or so more.

BUDDY:  "So what do you deduce from this?" Holmes asked Watson.

MARCUS:  What did Watson reply?

BUDDY:  Watson replied that if even a few of those millions of stars have planets, there might be some planets like earth and therefore there might be life on other planets.

MARCUS:  Wow, Watson was a very smart man.  I would never have thought of that.

BUDDY:  Not so fast, Marcus.  Holmes looked at Watson and said, "Watson, you're an idiot!  It means someone stole our tent."

MARCUS:  It does?  Did Holmes figure out who stole their tent and put him in jail? 

BUDDY:  You asked me to teach you how to tell a joke.  I just did but I think the punch line flew right over your head.  Let me know when you find it.
