Penguin on the run

 


From Karen's Killer Book Bench: an interview with Dr. John Watson.

6. A penguin walks up to you, right now, wearing a sombrero. What does he say to you and why is he here?

It being London, of course, he would first mention the cold. Then he would ask for directions to 221B Baker St., but I would have to inform him that Holmes no longer resides in London, and indeed no longer involves himself in cases. Then I would then invite him to a pub for a brandy, where he would tell me of his impending peril. Almost certainly of his escape from an Argentinian guano farm and the pursuit of bloodthirsty gauchos. It’s an old story. There’s an office in Special Branch now that looks after penguin emigres.
