Everyone knows that Sherlock Holmes smokes a pipe, but did you know the sleuth also does coke? According to the Chambers Dictionary of Literary Characters (2004), Holmes enjoys a 7-percent solution of cocaine.
Oh, and speaking of chemistry, in 2002 Holmes became the only literary character to receive a real-life Honorary Fellowship from the Royal Society of Chemistry.
As Dr. David Giachardi, secretary general of the Society, explained, "...we are stretching the rules slightly, tongue very slightly in cheek, to say to the world, here was a great man who selflessly pursued bad people on behalf of the good, using science, courage and crystal clear thought processes to achieve his goals."
C'mon, "crystal clear thought processes"?!
Given what we know of Holmes' coke habit, it would seem the Royal Society of Chemistry stretched more than just the rules -- it also stretched the truth!
But you don't need a fancy professional society to honor the quirky character; just put a set of these cool Sherlock Holmes Personal Checks in your pocketbook. Don't delay -- order yours today!
