Mr Fukken Holmes and the case of the … the…. Ummmm…. can’t seem to remember, my dear fellow.

Sheerluck Holmes, now 238 years old, has retired to the south of Engerland to run a profitable honey business using bees to make the stuff instead of …well, whatever honey is made from these days. Now read on…
‘Ring, Ring!’
‘I say, What! Hello, Harrumph! Harrumph!’
‘Watson… is that you?”
‘Holmes, Old Man! How the Devil… I say! What?’
‘Watson, I need you urgently. It’s that bastard Moriarty again!’
‘Right-ho, Holmes, Old Man. I will take a motorised charabanc this instant. If I hurry I can catch the 2.52 from Essex, that goes through, Wessex, Misex, Underagesex, Nosexpleasewe’rebritish and arrives in Sussex before you can give Mrs Hudson a poke in the badger.’
A little time later.
‘That was quick, Watson. I’d only just got the shovel out of the shed to dig up the old bag.’
“Holmes! I say…. ‘
‘What do you say, Watson….? You’re always going to tell me something but I am yet to hear it.’
‘Harrumph! Well, what’s this about the evil Bastard Moriarty, then?’
‘Watson, the dirty evil Moriarty bastard has done a poo in my pants!’
‘But, Holmes, Old Man, Moriaty is dead!’
‘And don’t I know it; get a whiff of my undercrackers! If that man’s not dead he’s fosterin’ a pernicious illness in his cloaca!’
‘Good Lord, Holmes! That is truly an evil and unpleasant despoilment of your danglers-hammock. Let’s get you cleaned up.’
‘Not now, Watson. I remembered why I needed you: one of my bees is missing!’
‘Ummm… which one, Holmes?”
‘It’s the yellow and black one… the one that buzzes in E flat minor…”
‘But Holmes, you know I am tone deaf!’
‘Yes, but you’re not fukken colour-blind are you?’ Now help me look for it!’
‘Right-oh! Where shall I look for it, Holmes, Old man?’
‘In the garden, Watson! Where do you think a bee might have got to? In the garden you fool! I’m going to look in the pub.’
Some time later Holmes staggers back from The King’s Knob, mumbling an old sea shanty: “What shall we do with the .. er.. the er…. the… hmm. What was I just saying…?”   He spies Watson.
‘Good Lord, Man!!! What the Devil has happened to you? You look gruesome!”
“I have been stung by your bees… about 35,000 times at last count before I passed out!’
‘What were you doing annoying my bees, you idiot?’
‘I wasn’t annoying them! I was looking for the bee you lost!”
‘Watson, This is a honey-making establishment; I have approximately 2.5 million bees here that I milk every day; why would I want you to find one more or less of the fuzzy little fukkers? Get a grip you demented quack!’
‘I say, Holmes…’
‘No, Watson… let me say this: there are more important things to worry about than an absent Apis mellifera…  that evil malefactor Moriarty has done a crap in my Calvin Kleins!’
‘I say, Holmes….’
‘What do you say, Watson….? You’re always…’    and so on and so on.
