Why men say 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 asked, "Why are
you crying?"

The woodcutter replied that his axe has fallen into
water. 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 happily.

One day while he was walking with his wife along the
riverbank, the woodcutter's 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 cheat! That is an untruth!"


The woodcutter replied, "Oh, forgive me, my Lord. It
is a misunderstanding. You see, if I said 'no' to
Jennifer Lopez, You will come up with
Catherine
Zeta-Jones
. Then if I also say 'no' to her, You will
thirdly come up with my wife, and I will say 'yes,'
and then all three will be given to me. But Lord, I am
a poor man and I will not be able to take care of all
three wives, so *that's* why I said yes this time."

The moral of the story is whenever a man lies it is
for an honourable and useful reason !!
