Just a funny…

The day finally arrived. Forest Gump makes it to Heaven. He is at
the Pearly Gates, met by St. Peter himself. However, the gates are
closed, and Forest approaches the gatekeeper.
St. Peter says, “Well, Forest, it is certainly good to see you. We have
heard a lot about you. I must tell you, though, that the place is
filling up fast, and we have been administering an entrance examination
for everyone. The test is short, but you have to pass it before you can
get into Heaven.”
Forest responds, “It sure is good to be here, St. Peter, sir. But
nobody ever told me about any entrance exam. I sure hope that the test
ain’t too hard .
Life was a big enough test as it was.”

St. Peter continues, “Yes, I know, Forest, but the test is only three
questions.
First:

What two days of the week begin with the letter T?

Second:

How many seconds are there in a year?

Third:
What is God’s first name?”

Forest leaves to think the questions over. He returns the next day and
sees St. Peter, who waves him up, and says, “Now that you have had a
chance to think the questions over, tell me your answers”

Forest replied, “Well, the first one — which two days in the week begins
with the letter “T”?

Shucks, that one is easy. That would be Today and Tomorrow.”

The Saint’s eyes opened wide and he exclaimed, “Forest, that is not what
I was thinking, but you do have a point, and I guess I did not specify,
so I will give you credit for that answer. How about the next one?”
asks St. Peter.

“How many seconds in a year? Now that one is harder,” replies Forest, but
I
thunk and thunk about that, and I guess the only answer can be twelve.”

Astounded, St. Peter said, “Twelve? Twelve? Forest, how in Heaven’s
name could you come up with twelve seconds in a year?”

Forest replied, “Shucks, there’s got to be twelve: January 2nd, February
2nd, March 2nd… ”

“Hold it,” interrupts St. Peter. “I see where you are going with this,
and I see your point, though that was not quite what I had in
mind….but I will have to give you credit for that one, too. Let usgo on with the third and final question.

Can you tell me God’s first name”?

“Sure,” Forest replied, “it’s Andy.”

“Andy?” exclaimed an exasperated and frustrated St Peter.
“Ok, I can understand how you came up with your answers to my first two
questions, but just how in the world did you come up with the name Andy
as the first name of God?”

“Shucks, that was the easiest one of all,” Forest replied. “I learnt it
from the song I learned in church, “ANDY WALKS WITH ME; ANDY TALKS WITH
ME; ANDY TELLS ME I AM HIS OWN.”

St. Peter opened the Pearly Gates, and said: “Run Forest, run.”

Give me a sense of humor, Lord.

St Peter, pray for us!
