Sherlock parody – Transcript of “The Case of the Missing Shoulder”
For those whose first language is not English, here’s a transcript of the latest parody in the hope that it will help. I have only transcribed the spoken words and not what is happening visually. If you haven’t seen the video yet because of the above reason, can I suggest that you watch it first and then rewatch with the transcript.
And trust me, don’t try to read it if you haven’t seen the video, or your head will explode.
There are a few bits I may have got wrong, so I’m happy to take suggestions of corrections!
I hope a few people find this useful. At least for a while it kept my mind off the pain from the tooth extraction that I suffered yesterday.
The transcripts of the previous parodies “Oklahomo” and “Mind Phallus” and links to the videos are here.
