I heard this was a discussion between The Lone Ranger and Tonto.
Like many classic memes and jokes, details often get changed to suit the audience....but given that Holmes, Watson, John Reid (TLR's alter ego) and Tonto are all fictional characters, a fictional story still works regardless of the fictional character's names...though I guess the impact of the story would diminish somewhat if the two protagonists were totally unknown shmucks.
I think the story works better with Holmes and Watson...Holmes's deductive reasoning 'wizardry' and Watson's relatively lack of deductive reasoning acumen gives the story just a little extra zing.
I heard the story but it was a unit’s 1SGT and their new captain who wanted to impress everyone.
