Weird Al nails it
Arturo is a 29-year-old male polar bear currently living in Argentina’s Mendoza Zoo. He is suffering in 40C (104F) heat in an enclosure that has just 20 inches of water for him to swim in and has as a consequence been displaying worrying behavior.
Please sign this petition or at least spread the word in order to have Arturo transferred to a zoo in Canada which has better facilities for an animal that is used to polar conditions.
Please guys, if you could sign this it would mean a lot. I’ve been following this case for months and it’s infuriating how little this zoo and our goverment care about this poor guy. Let’s give him a happy ending.
This is what Mycroft’s looking at when Lestrade comes to ask him about the bolt holes. I know it’s hard to read, but he’s using it to track someone. A couple of things…
1. Codename UGLY DUCKLING? Rubbish big brother, honestly. Except…
2. Hope I’m not about to embarrass myself geography-wise, but that doesn’t look like London…or England. In fact, it kinda looks like…
3. It says “tracking” and the “ugly duckling’s” position is clearly marked, yet Mycroft just tells Lestrade a few more bolt holes to check out and does not give an exact location, then casually dismisses him as if he has bigger things to worry about than his recently-shot little brother’s hospital escape (which we all know isn’t quite true).
If that really is somewhere around Warsaw – or just anywhere outside of London – well…Sherlock isn’t who Mycroft’s tracking here. So who is it?
Ugly Duckling…well, that’s a famous fairy tale. And we all know who loves fairy tales. Is Mycroft tracking Jim?
Alternatively…it’s the story of a duckling who is rejected by its family and eventually finds acceptance with the beautiful swans. Is Mycroft tracking the other one?
One more option – canonically, Irene Adler was the Prima Donna of the Warsaw Imperial Opera, and in this retelling we know she’s in witness protection. Is Mycroft tracking Irene?
Yes it’s Poland and yes, it’s Warsaw (more or less). I’d go for him tracking Sherlock while he was on his mission to eliminate Moriarty’s web. And I think the alias “Ugly Duckling” quite suits Sherlock.
Yes, I understood this to be tracking Sherlock.
I still love the Irene Adler theory though

Buster Keaton in The Blacksmith (1922). I got the chance to see the recently discovered alternate cut of this film (as well as bunch of other amazing rare films) screened on the banks of the Seine a few days ago and wrote a post about the experience.
