One day the poor wood cutter lost his axe in the stream. As no way to continue his living without an axe he sat down under a tree andstarted crying and praying for the Lord.
The Lord appeared in front of him and promised that he will find the axe in a miniute.
The Lord jumped to the water and brought up an golden axe. "Is this your's?" The man said 'No". "Keep it" the Lord said.
This time the Lord brought up the real axe and the happy man went home with all three axes with him.
After few days he lost his wife in the stream and kept crying and praying near the stream. The Lord appears in front of him and promised he will find his wife in a minute. The lord jumped to the water and brought Jenifer Lopez out of the stream in few seconds.
"Is this your wife" The Lord questioned. "Yes, my Lord" the man replied. The Lord got realy angry with the man. "I can remember you were so honest last time when you lost your axe. But you are lieng to me this time and you are going to accept this lady as your own wife. I am not going to help you any more. As a punishment you will loose your wife and the three axes also".
"Please understand me my Lord. If I say No when you brought this lady you may leave her with me and bring me Pamela Anderson. if I say No again you may leave her with me and bring my wife on third attempt. I am a very poor man. How can I maintain them? They are very expensive to maintain".
