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 had
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, please 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 me all three. Lord, I am a poor man, and 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!

This best of best feelings is when he tells you a lie and you know it's a lie. You look at him as if you believe every word he is saying, you actually nod your head in agreement. Then you leave it at that and a weel or so later just very non chalant ask him something that you know is going to catch him unawares. That expression on his face when I realises that he has been caught out. But the real secret is not to lose your cool be a cool as a cucumber......

Men may lie for a good reason, but almost always get cought out why? Don't they remember how or what they lied, or don't cover all the tracks. I always catch them out.
