moved, indicating that she never told a lie.”
“Incredible”, said the man.
“And whose clock is that one?”
St. Peter responded, “That’s Abraham Lincoln’s clock. The hands have
moved twice, telling us that Abraham told only two lies in his entire

St. Peter replied, “We’re using them as ceiling fans.”
