ONE day, while a woodcutter was cutting a branch of a tree above a river, his axe fell into the river. When he began crying, God appeared and asked him, "Why are you crying?"
The woodcutter told Him that his axe has fallen into water. God went down into the water and reappeared with a golden axe. "Is this your axe?", God asked. The woodcutter said "No".
God again went down and came up with a silver axe. "Is this your axe?", God asked.
The woodcutter said "No". God went down again and came up with an iron axe. "Is this your axe?" God asked. The woodcutter said "Yes". God was pleased with the man's honesty and gave him all the three axes. The woodcutter went home happily.
One day while he was
walking with his wife along the river, his wife fell into the river.
When he began crying, God appeared and asked him, "Why are you
crying?" "My wife has fallen into the water." God went
down into the water and came up with Jennifer Lopez. "Is this
your wife?", God asked.
Looking at his 10-year-old pride and joy watching TV with a bored expression, a father remarked, "When I was your age, Son, I walked miles in blizzards, milked four cows early each morning, and rode a horse instead of riding in a comfortable car. What do you think of that?"
Looking up at his father, the boy replied, "I wish we could have that kind of fun now."
After a young man had grown up and become a man, he and his father were seated in front of the TV, during a football game. During halftime exercises, his dad remarked, "Son, every time I gave you a whipping when you were bad, you would go into the bathroom and spend about 30 minutes, scrubbing the toilet. You got it spotlessly clean, and I could never figure out why you did that". Without taking his eyes off the TV, the young man replied, "I was just getting even with you for whipping me".
The father, startled, replied, "How? By cleaning the toilet?" "No", the son answered, "by scrubbing it with your toothbrush".
