The Seamstess *funny joke*

The Seamstress

One day, when a seamstress was sewing while sitting close to a river,
her thimble fell into the river.  When she cried out, the Lord appeared
and asked, "My dear child, why are you crying?"The seamstress replied
that her thimble had fallen into the water and that she needed it to
help her husband in making a living for their family.The Lord dipped
His
hand into the water and pulled up a golden thimble set with pearls. "Is
this your thimble?" the Lord asked

 The seamstress replied, "No."

The Lord again dipped into the river. He held out a silver thimble
ringed with sapphires.

"Is this your thimble?" the Lord asked.

Again, the seamstress replied, "No."

The Lord reached down again and came up with a leather   thimble. "Is
this your thimble?" the Lord asked

The seamstress replied, "Yes."

The Lord was pleased with the woman's honesty and gave her all three
thimbles to keep, and the seamstress went home happy.

Some years later, the seamstress was walking with her husband along the
riverbank, and her husband fell into the river and disappeared under
the
water.

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

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

The Lord went down into the water and came up with George Clooney.

"Is this your husband?" the Lord asked.

"Yes," cried the seamstress .

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

The seamstress replied, "Oh, forgive me, my Lord It is a
misunderstandi ng. You see, if I had said 'no' to George Clooney, you
would have come up with Brad Pitt. Then if I said 'no' to him, you
would
have come up with my husband. Had I then said 'yes,' you would
have given me all three.  Lord, I'm not in the best of health and would
not be able to take care of all three husbands, so THAT'S why I said
'yes' to George Clooney.

And so the Lord let her keep him.

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

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