You know, I WAS wondering why my friend was laughing so hard while reading Sherlock Holmes. I was just thinking he loved Holmes' witticisms more than usual. Makes you wonder where Holmes gets the energy to solve cases, other than maybe doubling the percentage of cocaine in his solution. Thanks for sharing.
I guess it was that QI segment about the number of times 'ejaculated' was mentioned in the Sherlock Holmes novels. I was right. That was so funny, even thou if I ended watching the repeat of that episode the other night.
Ah, yes, QI, a fantastic show. A show that has some of my favourite things: British wit, intelligence (well, on occasion, anyway), Stephen Fry and the frequent visit of one of my favourite comedians: mr. Bill Bailey.
Up untill a year ago, I did not know what "ejaculation" ment nor that it existed, when I did I thought, "Well, every language must have a word for everything." And now I'm laughing like crazy, because I never thought it also could have other meanings than "that." xDDDDD
