‘What do you make of it, Watson?’

‘The whole thing’s a bit fishy to me, Holmes; it must be a fish.’

‘But what type of fish?’

‘Based upon the evidence of my eyes, I would deduce it as being a kipper.’

‘As always, Watson, you see but you do not observe. Kippers always come in pairs, or to be specific, two halves joined together. Also, they are only lightly salted and smoked, whereas this particular specimen has not been split along the backbone like a kipper and is considerably drier.’

‘So what is it then?’

‘It’s a red herring, Watson.’
