"The Entire Canon" (Paul Thomas Miller)
"The Entire Canon" (Paul Thomas Miller) apologised, but it seems there was no need as no one had noticed until he pointed it out.
"The Entire Canon" (Paul Thomas Miller) gave the following toast to the true hero of A Scandal In Bohemia:
1. "The Entire Canon" (Paul Thomas Miller) once again suggested that we should try to get some more members. Once again, no one seconded the motion. The rest of the Society expressed their annoyance at this being brought up in three consecutive meetings.
"The Entire Canon" (Paul Thomas Miller) presented his attempt at a pastiche about a drunk Holmes and Watson. A pissed-iche, if you will. He attempted to apologise for it but it was pointed out that the apologies had already been and gone.
Any Other Business:
It was noted that Watson found Irene Adler between a Hebrew rabbi and a deep sea fish loving staff-commander. Lucky old Irene.
It was noted that the notion of Watson as a gentleman is a myth. Witness this objectifying misogynist description from TWIS: "...nothing remained of the heap of shag which I had seen upon the previous night."
It was noted that Holmes often claims to have no interest in women but he has definite admiration for Mrs Barclay in CROO. He goes so far as to describe her having "a cute attack of brain-fever".
The next meeting was scheduled for 13th April 2018.
