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 Angel appeared & asked, "Why are you crying?"
The woodcutter replied that his axe has fallen into water & he needed it to make a living.
The Angel went down into the water & reappeared with a Golden Axe. "Is this your axe?" the Angel asked. The woodcutter replied: "No."
The Angel again went down & came up with a Silver Axe. "Is this your axe?" the Angel asked. Again, the woodcutter replied: "No."
The Angel went down again & came up with an Iron Axe. "Is this your axe?" the Angel asked. The woodcutter replied: "Yes."
The Angel was pleased with the man's honesty & gave him all 3 Axes to keep, & the woodcutter went home happy.
Some time later the woodcutter was walking with his wife along the riverbank, & his wife fell into the river.
When he cried out, the Angel again appeared & asked him: "Why are you crying?"
"Oh, my wife has fallen into the water!"
The Angel went down into the water & came up with Pamela Anderson
"Is this your wife?" the Angel asked. "Yes," cried the woodcutter.
The Angel was furious. "You lied! That is an untruth!" The woodcutter replied, "Oh, forgive me, It is a misunderstanding. You see, if I had said 'NO' to Pamela , you would have come up with *Angelina Jolie *. Then if I said 'NO' to her, you would have come up with MY WIFE. Had I then said 'YES,' you would have given me all 3.
I'm a poor man, & not able to take care of 3 wives, so THAT'S why I said YES to Pamela ."
The moral of this story is: Whenever a man lies, it is for a good & honorable reason & for the benefit of others.
MEN ARE TRULY HONORABLE!
