The Thimble - the seamster's version

Same as the one for seamstress - thimble, gold, silver blah blah blah until the point where the seamster's wife falls into the river and disappears under water.

When he cried out (he didn't have to, but he did), the Lord again appeared and asked him, "Why are you crying?"

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

The Lord went down into the water and came up with Anna Kournikova (yes, all wet). "Is this your wife?" the Lord asked.

"No," cried the seamster.

The Lord again went into the water and came up with Jenny Lopez. "Is this your wife?" the Lord asked.

The seamstress replied, "No."

The Lord again went into the river and came up with the seamster's wife. "Is she your wife?" the Lord asked.

Again, the seamster replied, "No."

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

The seamster replied, "Oh, forgive me, my Lord. It is NOT a misunderstanding. You see, if I had said 'yes' to my wife, you would have given me all three. Lord, I'm not able to handle one wife. How will I be able to handle all three wives, so THAT'S why I said 'no' to my wife."

The moral of this story is: Whenever a (married) man lies, it is for a good and empathisable reason, and in HIS best interests. That's our story, and we're sticking to it.
