The phrase "no shit, Sherlock" or just "no shit" is a reply used when someone else points out something obvious.

I was thinking about it the other day và I realized I don"t know if there is a clean version, i.e. something you could say in polite conversation or in front of children. I guess saying "no way" or "no, really?" sarcastically works, but is there a better phrase?


That's FANTASTIC, Sherloông chồng. Why did I say FANTASTIC? Because my parents sent me to lớn summer school for proper language usage, where they taught me khổng lồ say FANTASTIC instead of BULL SHIT. –user59721 Dec 14 "13 at 3:32
I think the clean version would be:

No kidding!

or possibly

No, duh!

If you added ", Sherlock" lớn either of these, you would cause listeners who know the sweary version to lớn think of it and laugh, without either saying the word or introducing it khổng lồ listeners who didn"t know it.


"Figure that one out all by yourself?" "Thank you, Captain Obvious.""And in other news, XXX has discovered water is wet!"I could probably danh sách a lot more. Anything you can say that either points out the obviousness of the statement or sarcastically expresses appreciation for the speaker"s "insight" would work.


I think the Captain Obvious one is probably the closest in spirit. The point here is lớn very clearly & obviously insult the other các buổi party & be at least a little bit rude. Some of the other phrases suggested so far (e.g. "No kidding") fail lớn be (sufficiently) insulting and rude. –user38936 Nov 17 "14 at 15:13
Another phrase made popular by internet memes, that is quite regularly used in the context you mention is "you don"t say!".

UrbanDictionary defines it as :

just another way of saying a very commonly and aptly used phrase "NO SHIT". It is when stating the blatant obvious và saying it as if it was just thought of on the spot. It is used to lớn show distaste in a rather sarcastic & underhanded way and if said properly can be funny lớn no ends.

Wikitionary mentions it khổng lồ be synonymous to lớn "really, no kidding!".

Ya think?

I can smell the brain cells burning from here.

No... really??

I NEVER would have imagined that.

You get paid for figuring that out?

Didn"t have khổng lồ expkết thúc a lot of brainpower on THAT one, did you?

Thank God you told me!

And here I thought we would NEVER figure that out.

What was your first clue?

I seriously believe sầu its got to lớn be of origin in both tone & temperment. Maybe British with a hint of upper class jilt involved.

I see Sherlochồng jumping at the chance to lớn use "Indubitably Mr. Watson" for the exact same reason someone today might say "No ** Sherlochồng."

But for Dr. Watson lớn say it, that means Sherloông chồng would literally have sầu khổng lồ be in a coma for at least a couple of years lớn thua trận serious perspective sầu và then having been awoken made a leap at something that used to be obvious that only now Dr. Watson has the upper had in understanding blusters out & stabs at a slowly awakening Sherlochồng and says something to the affect.

But what would Sherlochồng say to make Watson go inlớn such a frenzy? "I think I"ll have a cup of tea may haps?" No. Its more like Sherloông xã would say, "I think Moriarty tried to vì chưng me in."

Upon hearing such a thing Dr. Watson already knowing the answer full well after much investigating would leap at the chance, "All the clues were dangling over you like daggers Mr. Sherlochồng, surely!"
