Joke – The Honorable Man
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 *Genevieve Nnaji*
“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 *Genevieve* , you would have come up with *Omotola *. 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 Genevieve .”*
The moral of this story is: Whenever a man lies, it is for a *good & honorable reason & for the benefit of others.*
That’s our story, &
we’re sticking to it!
*MEN ARE TRULY HONORABLE!*
