My Sherlock Holmes.

Sometimes, it's just beyond words.

I have an aging banana. Its name is Sherlock Holmes.

See, it says "Sherlock Holmes," right there.



But, it's my Sherlock Holmes. I actually own it. Or at least fifty percent of it . . . no pre-nuptial agreement, you know.

I will probably eat Sherlock Holmes in the next twenty-four hours, so as much the unique incarnation of Sherlock Holmes as my banana Sherlock is, he really isn't much of a collectible. Doesn't really do well in a story either. Seems a quite pointless Sherlock Holmes.

And yet, for now, he is a most special banana. How special?

Well, I took a picture of him and put it on the internet. And I only did it because Sherlock Holmes exists.

Sherlock Holmes, the banana, that is. And I am his biggest fan.

And why not?

Because sometimes, it's all just beyond words, isn't it? Beyond words.

  3. Now that it is on the internet perhaps YOU are not his biggest fan!

  4. Is this going to turn into some obscene fanfic? I'm sure that it is not another stab at Elementary which Brad has sworn off.

    1. He has gone to a better place. (At least as far as my hunger was concerned.)

  7. Wait, does this fall under copyright violation or trademark violation? Or even (dare I say it) fair use? It's all very confusing. Deliciously confusing.

    (Lookit me, I'm catching up!)
