Why men lie. (A joke Just for laughs.)

One day while a woodcutter was cutting the branch of a tree above a river, his axe fell into the water. When he cried out, God appeared and asked "Why are you crying?" The woodcutter replied that his axe had fallen into the river, and he needed the axe to make his living. God went down into the water and reappeared with a golden axe. "Is this your axe?" God asked. "No" the woodcutter replied. God again went into the river and came up with a silver axe. "Is this your axe?" God asked again. The woodcutter replied "No". God went down in the water a third time and came up with an iron axe. "Is this your axe?" God asked. The woodcutter replied, "Yes." God 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 on the riverbank when his wife slipped and fell into the river. When the woodcutter cried out, God again appeared. "Why are you crying?" God asked. "Oh, God, my wife has fallen into the river!" God went down into the water and came up with Jennifer Lopez. "Is this your wife?" God asked. "Yes!" cried the woodcutter. God was furious. "YOU LIE!" "That is not true!" the woodcutter replied. Forgive me my God. This is just a misunderstanding. Let me explain. You see, if i had said 'no' to Jennifer Lopez, you would have gone back in the river and come up with Catherine Zeta-Jones. Then if I said 'No' to her, you would have come back with my wife. Had i then said 'Yes' you would have given all three women to me. "God, I am a poor man, and i am unable to take care of three wives. That is why i said yes to Jennifer Lopez." The moral of the story is: Whenever a man lies, it is for a good and honourable reason, and for the benefit of others. Hope you liked that one.
