    ONE DAY, A SEAMSTRESS WAS SEWING WHILE SITTING
    CLOSE TO A RIVER AND 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 IN TO 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 TH IMBLE?" 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 SAME 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 MEL GIBSON. "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 MISUNDERSTANDING. YOU SEE, IF I HAD SAID 'NO' TO
    MEL GIBSON, YOU WOULD HAVE COME UP WITH TOM CRUISE.
    THEN, IF I SAID 'NO' TO HIM, YOU WOULD HAVE COME UP WITH
    MY HUSBAND, AND 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 MEL GIBSON."

    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 STORY, AND WE'RE STICKING TO IT.

    I would say yes to Mel Gibson, but not Tom.
