15 Sherlock Holmes Memes Only True Fans Will Understand

Posted on January 5, 2018 by

January 6 marks the 164th birthday of Sherlock Holmes: a detective who has been beloved for decades. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle published the very first Sherlock Holmes story, A Study in Scarlet, in 1887. Though it attracted surprisingly little popularity when it was originally published, Sherlock has long since become a cult favorite among readers, and later, viewers. With two movies and a TV series to his name, Sherlock Holmes has taken on many forms, including the current portrayal by Benedict Cumberbatch on BBC’s Sherlock. In honor of the detective’s birthday, check out our hilarious list of Sherlock memes below.
