### Forest Gump at pearly gates!

FORREST GUMP GOES TO HEAVEN tz
The day finally arrived. Forrest Gump dies and goes to Heaven. He
is at the Pearly Gates, met by St. Peter himself. However, the gates
are closed, and Forrest approaches the gatekeeper.

St. Peter said, "Well, Forrest, 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."

Forrest 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 continued, "Yes, I know, Forrest, 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?"

Forrest 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

Forrest 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, "Forrest, 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

“How many seconds in a year? Now that one is harder," replied
Forrest, "but I thunk and thunk about that, and I guess the only

Astounded, St. Peter said, "Twelve? Twelve? Forrest, how in
Heaven's name could you come up with twelve seconds in a year?"

Forrest 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 us go on with
the third and final question. Can you tell me God's first name"?

“Sure," Forrest replied, "it's Andy." "Andy?" exclaimed an exasperated
and a 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," Forrest replied. "I learnt it
from the song, "ANDY WALKS WITH ME, ANDY TALKS WITH ME,
ANDY TELLS
ME I AM HIS OWN. . . "

St. Peter opened the Pearly Gates, and said: "Run Forrest, run."
