|Get a Clue|
One of the top vote-getters in the Laughlab's World's Funniest Joke contest a few years ago was a joke about Sherlock Holmes and his faithful assistant Dr. Watson.
Holmes and Watson went camping and pitched their tent under the stars. During the night, Holmes woke up Watson and said, "Watson, look up at the stars and tell me what you deduce."
Watson said: "I see millions of stars, and even if a few of those have planets, it's quite likely there are some planets like Earth, and if there are a few planets like Earth, there might also be life."
Holmes said: "Watson, you idiot. Somebody stole our tent."
People don't always draw the conclusions they should from the evidence presented to them.
