Replace 'Sherlock' quotes with pancake? It's all the rage.

sherlock-benedict-cumberbatch-deerstalker.pngWhile the BBC's "Sherlock" Season 2 wrapped up its PBS run on Sunday (May 20) and originally aired in the U.K. over the Christmas holidays, the master sleuth is making news in a typically unorthodox way on Twitter with the globally-trending hashtag #ReplaceSherlockQuotesWithPancake.

There are indeed many Sherlock quotes undergoing pancake modification and all of them appear to be from the most recent three episodes of the Benedict Cumberbatch/ Martin Freeman starring shows. Though, absent any recreational pharmaceuticals, most of them don't seem to be much improved by the pancake substition.

For instance, this perfectly serviceable quote:

"Shame on you, John Watson! Mrs Hudson, leave Baker Street? England would fall!" which becomes, via the stylings of one tweeter -- actually several had the exact same brainstorm, "Shame on you, John Watson! Mrs Hudson, leave Pancake Street? England would fall!"

Or this one:
"How do you stalk a deer with a hat? What are you going to do, throw it? Some sort of death frisbee?" which becomes the pancake flat, "How do you stalk a deer with a pancake? What are you going to do, throw it? Some sort of death frisbee?"

Sherlock himself would probably admire this flippant observation:

"If you #ReplaceSherlockQuotesWithPancake you just have Pancake."

Indeed.
