Men's White Lies

One day, when a man was sitting close to a river, his wedding ring fell into the river. When he cried out, the Lord appeared and asked, "My dear child, why are you crying?"

The man replied that his wedding ring had fallen into the water.

The Lord dipped His hand into the water and pulled up a platinum wedding ring set with diamonds.

"Is this your wedding ring?" the Lord asked

The man replied, "No."

The Lord again dipped into the river. He held out a silver wedding ring ringed with sapphires. "Is this your wedding ring?" the Lord asked.

Again, the man replied, "No."

The Lord reached down again and came up with a bronze wedding ring. "Is this your wedding ring?" the Lord asked.

The man replied, "Yes."

The Lord was pleased with the man's honesty and gave him all three wedding rings to keep, and the man went home happy.

Some years later, the man was walking with his wife along the riverbank, and his wife fell into the river and disappeared under the water.

When he cried out, the Lord again appeared and asked him, "Why are you crying?"

"Oh Lord, my wife has fallen into the river!"

The Lord went down into the water and came up with Jessica Alba.

"Is this your wife?" the Lord asked.

"Yes," cried the man.

The Lord was furious. "You lied! That is an untruth!"

The man replied, "Oh, forgive me, my Lord it is a misunderstanding. You see, if I had said 'no' to Jessica Alba, 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 three. Lord, I believe in only loving one wife so that's why I said 'yes' to Jessica Alba.

So the man went home with Jessica Alba and the Lord was pleased.

The moral of this story is: Whenever a man lies, it's for a good and honorable reason, and in the best interest of others.

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