Detective Obvious: An Introduction

Follow the exploits of Det. Obvious, a satirical series of fictional stories about a detective's assistant who only points out the obvious.


Detective Obvious was born after a conversation about bunnies. After noting some bunnies romping around in the yard, Jilly tried to figure out where the bunnies lived. A very helpful person commented, "They must have a warren somewhere." Shocking. I know.

The idea for Det. Obvious came to mind immediately. There are too many shows and books where detectives are too competent, too uncannily insightful. Off the top of my head, I couldn't think of any works that parodied the trope of the savant detective. If you know of any, please point me to them!

I am not a professional writer, nor do I plan on being one. My stories will be extremely rudimentary. I hope you find them amusing. If you have any feedback, please let me know.

If you have recommendations for situations you'd like Detective Obvious to investigate, please get in touch and I will do my best to write something riveting!

Feel free to subscribe to 1) Let me know if that thing even works for real and 2) Get occasional updates on Det. Obvious stories.
