Idioms2.jpgPeople → Brains and beauty

 
A Hollywood actress once met the Britiish philosopher, Bertrand Russell. Whereas he was quite ugly, she turned heads wherever she went. She was rather full of herself and said to Russell, 'They say I'm the most beautiful woman in the world, and I hear you're the smartest man. Imagine if we had a child with your brains and my beaty'.
Russell, who was never lost for words, replied, 'Imagine if it had my beauty and your brains'.
