    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 asked, "Why are you crying?" The woodcutter replied

    that his axe has fallen into water, and he needed the axe to make

    his living. TheLord went down in the water and reappeared with a

    golden axe."Is this your axe?"the Lord asked.

    Thewoodcutter replied, "No."

    The Lord again went down and came up with a silver axe. "Is this

    your axe?"the Lord asked.

    Again, thewoodcutter replied, "No."

    The Lord went down again and came up with an iron axe. "Is this your

    axe?" the Lord asked.

    Yes", he replied. The Lord was pleased with the man's honesty and

    gave him all three axes to keep, and the woodcutter went home happy.

    Sometime 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,

    mywife has fallen into the water!" The Lord went down into the

    water and cameup with Angelina Jolie.

    "Is this your wife?" the Lord asked.

    Yes," cried the woodcutter.

    The Lord was furious. "You lied! That is an untruth!"

    Thewoodcutter fell to his knees and cried, "Oh, forgive me, Lord.

    It is a misunderstanding. You see, if I had said 'no' to Angelina

    Jolie, Youwould have come up with Catherine Zeta-Jones. Then if I also said 'no'

    to her, youwould have come up with my wife. Had I then said 'yes,'

    youwould have given me all three. Lord, I am a poor man, and am not

    able to take care of all three wives, and I love my wife such that I

    don't want her to share me with anyone, so THAT'S why I said yes to

    Angelina Jolie."

    The moral of this story is: Whenever a man lies, it is for a good

    and honourable reason, and for the benefit of others.. MOSTLY his wife!
