Unhappy Landing

Unhappy Landing.

Mr. Dash was always courteous to women. One day when he was airing his views on politeness he remarked that he had never seen an ugly woman.

A woman standing near, who happened to have a flat nose, overheard him and said: “Sir, look at me, and confess that I am ugly!”

“Madam,” replied Mr. Dash, “like the rest of your sex, you are an angel fallen from the skies, but it was not your fault that you happened to fall on your nose.”
