Gotcha there! I bet you were expecting that the Professor dresses up as Sherlock Holmes to do his deductive detective work. No, Sire – he’s going for something slightly less stereotypical. Not that he hasn’t used the Sherlock Holmes outfit many times in the past…so often, in fact, that some people suspect him of actually being…but no more. While he looks younger than in the last chapter, he is in fact older, and a Nero Wolfe outfit comes with all of the deductive power of the HOlmes one, plus you don’t even have to get up from your chair. Much more age-appropriate.
Speaking of appropriate – yes, our friends were stuck in appropriate-panic mode ever since the last update, until Mopey snapped them out of it just now. It was pretty exhausting, but it was appropriate, so what can you do? Still, just more of a good reason for the Professor to use the Wolfe outfit – he can catch his breath and recover better in it.
More on Thursday.
