God gave you Perfect Hunchback!
The Reverend Whitefield having remarked in a sermon that everything made by god was perfect.
What think you of me?
said a deformed man in a pew beneath who arose from his seat, and pointed at his own back .
Think of you, reiterated the preacher.
Why sir, you are the most perfect hunch back my eyes ever beheld

Which leg?

Madame Bernhardt had a subtle sense of humour. Shortly after recovering from the amputation of her leg, she received a cable from the manager of the Pan American Exposition at San Francisco. He had the temerity to ask permission to exhibit her leg at the Exposition, offering her 100000 dollars. She cabled back only two words
Which leg?
That ended the matter

Bridge is Gone!
Junius Brutus Booth, the tragedian, had a broken nose.
“You are such a wonderful actor Mr Booth, said a lady upon being introduced to him, but to be perfectly frank with you, I can’t get over your nose.”
‘There is no wonder, Madam’, Booth replied, ‘the bridge is gone’.

A British veteran of the Boer War was discharged from the army in a hopeless condition; he had lost a leg and an arm, and one eye was gone. In his distress, he was obliged to solicit alms on the London streets. One day an Irish man who spied him showered coins upon the unfortunate man with both the hands.

Why do you do that?
Demanded a bystander.
Don’t you see that man is a British soldier —- a foe to Ireland.
I do retorted the Irish man . But he can have all I have got. He is the first English man I have ever seen that was trimmed up to suit me.
