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 & reappeared with a golden axe.

"Is this your axe?" the Lord asked. The woodcutter replied, "No." The Lord again went down & came up with a silver axe. "Is this your axe?" the Lord asked. Again, the woodcutter replied, "No." The Lord went down again & 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 & gave him all three axes to keep, & 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 & asked him, "Why are you crying?" "Oh Lord, my wife has fallen into the water!" The Lord went down into the water & 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, & I will say 'yes,' & then all three will be given to me.

But Lord, I am a poor man & 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 honorable and useful reason.
