This maybe an old one, but here it goes:

Why Men 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 the water, and
he needed the axe to make his living.

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 happy.

Some time 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, 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 lied! That is an untruth!"

The woodcutter replied, "Oh, forgive me, my Lord. It is a
misunderstanding. You see, if I had said 'no' to Jennifer Lopez,
You would have come up with Catherine Zeta-Jones. Then if I also
said 'no' to her, You would have come up with my wife. Had I then
said 'yes,' you would have given all three to me. Lord, I am a poor
man, and I am not able to take care of all three wives, so THAT'S
why I said yes to Jennifer Lopez."

The moral of this story is:
Whenever a man lies, it is for a good and honorable reason, and
for the benefit of others.

That's our story, and we're sticking to it!
