Ans: There was a dispute between the nose and the eyes about the possession of glasses. The tongue was a lawyer. He raised the issue with professionalism. Chief Baron sat in the Air Court to resolve the dispute. He was known for his wise decisions.
The argument started on the side of the nose. The lawyer argued that the nose always had glasses to wear .He owned the glasses, and so he owned the glasses .Then the width of the nose was so wide that it was designed to rest perfectly on the nose. There was a stick on the horse .He proved again that the glasses are nose.

Another argument was more interesting .The lawyer pointed to the judge's eyes as he had a nose on the lawyer .The face without a nose is never there. Suppose that was the face of the argument .Who can wear glasses then? He concluded that the glasses were clearly made for the nose and the nose was for the glasses.
The same lawyer then shook his side .He started arguing with his eyes .He argued in the best way possible. But no one knew what his arguments were. The court remained unopposed. The arguments on the side of the eye do not seem to favor the nose. So the judge kept his eyes in the direction of the nose or the candle light and told him to close his eyes.
