A "Deduction" of Sherlocks

I think that will serve as the collective noun.

On Saturday just gone an attempt was made to set the first Guinness World Record for the number of people dressed as Sherlock Holmes in one place.

There is no current record to beat so this will be the first (if it is actually awarded). More details here.

  1. I like your choice of collective noun.

  2. I don't normally take Alistair to task, and I only do this tongue firmly planted in cheek, but how can those be Sherlock Holmes when Holmes never for sure wore a deerstalker?

    I am sure it was a fun event. Are you in the picture?
