A Bad Shot

A COCKNEY being out one day amusing himself with shooting, happened to

fire through a hedge, on the other side of which was a man standing. The

shot passed through the man's hat, but missed the bird. Did you fire at

me, sir? he hastily asked. O! no, sir, said the shrewd sportsman, I

never hit what I fire at.
