Why Men Lie
One day, while a woodcutter was cutting a branch of a tree above a river,
his axe fell into the river. When he cried out, the Lord appeared and
"Why are you crying?" The woodcutter replied that his axe has fallen into
water, and he needed the axe to make his living.
The Lord went down into the water and reappeared with a golden axe. "Is this
your axe?" the Lord asked. The woodcutter replied, "No." The Lord again went
down and came up with a silver axe. "Is this your axe?" the Lord asked.
Again, the woodcutter replied, "No." The Lord went down again and came up
with an iron axe. "Is this your axe?" the Lord asked. The woodcutter replied, "Yes."
The Lord was pleased with the man's honesty and gave him all three axes to
keep, and the woodcutter went home happy.
Some time later the woodcutter was walking with his wife along the riverbank,
and his wife fell into the river.
When he cried out, the Lord again appeared and asked him, "Why are you
crying?" "Oh Lord, my wife has fallen into the water!" The Lord went down
into the water and came up with Jennifer Lopez. "Is this your wife?" the
Lord asked. "Yes," cried the woodcutter. The Lord was furious. "You lied!
That is an untruth!"
The woodcutter replied, "Oh, forgive me, my Lord. It is a misunderstanding.
You see, if I had said 'no' to Jennifer Lopez, You would have come up with
Catherine Zeta-Jones. Then if I also said 'no' to her, you would have come
up with my wife. Had I then said 'yes,' you would have given me all three.
Lord, I am a poor man, and am not able to take care of all three wives, so
THAT'S why I said yes to Jennifer Lopez."
The moral of this story is: Whenever a man lies, it is for a good and
honorable reason, and for the benefit of others. That's our story, and we're
sticking to it!
