A Holmes and Watson joke in Chinese [Elementary Level]

A Holmes and Watson joke in Chinese [Elementary Level]This is a joke that has been provided by a reader recommendation. Thanks Joseph for your recommendation and English translation.

In this Chinese joke, Dr. Watson is as lovely “retarded” as in all Holmes’ stories.

I’ll rate the joke as elementary Chinese level. It’s courtesy of funnychinesejokes.com. Hope you like it!

[simplified Chinese]

有一次福尔摩斯与华生一起去露营。
在帐篷盖好之后,他们二个就钻进去睡觉。

到了半夜,福尔摩斯突然把华生摇醒。
并且指着满天星星对华生说:
「华生,你看着满天星星有何感想?」

华生看了星星一眼之后就说道:
「看了这满天星星,使我觉得人类真是渺小,我们应该好好珍惜我们的生命,造福社会,为世界尽一份心力。那福尔摩斯,你呢?」

福尔摩斯瞪着满天星星说道:
「你娘咧,我们的帐棚不见了!」

到了半夜,福尔摩斯突然把华生摇醒。
并且指著满天星星对华生说:
「华生,你看著满天星星有何感想?」

华生看了星星一眼之後就说道:
「看了这满天星星,使我觉得人类真是渺小,我们应该好好珍惜我们的生命,造福社会,为世界尽一份心力。那福尔摩斯,你呢?」

[English translation]

Holmes and Watson once went camping.
Inside the tent, both of them fell asleep.

In the middle of the night, Holmes woke Watson suddenly.
And pointing at the starry sky, Holmes said :
“Watson, look at the starry sky, what are your feelings then ?”

After looking at the stars, Watson replied :
“This starry sky makes me feel that we are really small humans who should cherish our lives for the benefit of the society, and make a contribution to the world. So, Sherlock Holmes, how about you?”

Holmes staring at the starry sky said:
“Damn you ! — Our tent is gone.”
