HOLMESIAN TOP 10 LISTS
by Whatsits Galore
To be absolutely fair, we got this idea from another website that was filled with Top Ten lists of a holmesian nature. We tried to add our humble offerings, but they had stopped accepting new entries. These lists were too good to waste, however, so Whatsits Galore presents them here.
Lest you should wonder, we even went back to get the name of the site, intending to post a proper credit, but, alas, it is no more.
