The day finally arrived when Forrest Gump dies and goes to Heaven. 
He met at the Pearly Gates 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 had a chance to 
think the questions over, tell me your answers." 

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 one?" asked St. Peter. "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 answer can be twelve." 

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 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, 

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

Give us a sense of humor, Lord.
Give us the ability to understand,
And put humor in our life,
And -- pass it on to other folk.
