T-Rex: Sherlock Holmes stumbled out of the duplication machine that he'd stumbled into slightly before this story started. And then, seconds later, ANOTHER Sherlock Holmes, identical in every way, also stumbled out!
T-Rex: "Gasp!" gasped Watson. "Sherlock SQUARED!"
T-Rex: "Actually," said the Sherlocks in unison, "that's inaccurate. There was only one me before, and one squared is still one. In fact, one to the power of ANYTHING is still one, so while it's accurate to exclaim 'Sherlock squared' at any point in time when I'm NOT duplicated, saying it when I HAVE recently been duplicated is an objective error."
Utahraptor: This decimated Watson's happiness. T-Rex: YES. It was reduced by precisely 1/10th.
T-Rex: However, later on the two Sherlocks stumbled into the duplication machine and FOUR Sherlocks came out, and as the square of two IS four, this made sense, and Watson was able to successfully and accurately deploy his phrase. Utahraptor: THE END.
