“What do you call a bee that lives in America? A USB.” – @BakerStBabes [Twitter: 15 Feb 16 – 1:55PM]

Inspired by CBS Elementary

Smiling, Joan asked, “Since when do we have the bees roam outside the
Hive?” Sherlock hadn’t noticed when she returned. His eyes were fixated on the
Evidence board above the fireplace. Sherlock scrunched his face, and
Rolled his left wrist, which broke his concentration. Sherlock
Looked up to see a dozen bee printed USBs flying above. “Prank
Of yours, Watson?” Sherlock asked, slightly annoyed. “We are on a
Case. I would think that our little contest would be on a truce.” “Oh, so
Kind of like how you began our ‘contest’ without telling me?” Joan pressed a
Switch on a remote not-so-hidden behind her back. The dozen

USB bees flew downward, causing Sherlock to duck and slide around in his
Socks. “I get the point, Watson! Next time, we shall state explicit
Boundaries and talk through pranking rules like proper gentlefolk!”
Satisfied, Joan turned it off. The USB bees fell. “Alfredo makes the best toys.”
