Adj. This expression is a play on the similarity between the word "thorough", and "Thoreau", the last name of famed author Henry David Thoreau. "Henry David" as a phrase can be used to replace the word "thorough" in any common sentence.
For instance, say you are in the middle of a board room discussion with a bunch of corporate executives. You could chime in and say "I've done a very Henry David analysis of these reports, and things are looking good."

By adding "ly", this can also be made into an adverb. "I Henry Davidly enjoyed our evening. Let's do this again!"
