Fuller Brush Rep Rose Mundorff tells us what happens when...
Forrest Gump Goes to Heaven
The day finally arrives: Forrest Gump dies and goes to heaven. He is
met at the Pearly Gates by St. Peter himself. The gates are closed,
however, and Forrest approaches the gatekeeper.
St. Peter says "Well, Forrest, it's certainly good to see you. We have
heard a lot about you. I must inform you that the place is filling up
fast, and we've been administering an entrance examination for everyone.
The tests are fairly short, but you need to pass before you can get into Heaven.
Forrest responds "It shore is good to be here St. Peter. I was looking
forward to this. Nobody ever told me about any entrance exam. Sure
hope the test ain't too hard; life was a big enough test as it was."
St. Peter goes on, "Yes, I know Forrest but the test I have for you is only
three questions. Here is the first: What 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 goes away to think the questions over. He returns the next day and
goes up to St. Peter to try to answer the exam questions. St. Peter waves
him up and says, "Now that you have had a chance to think the questions over,
tell me your answers."
Forrest says, "Well, the first one, how many days of the week begin with the
letter "T"? Shucks, that one's easy. That'd be Today and Tomorrow.
The Saint's eyes open wide and he exclaims, "Forrest! That's not what I
was thinking, but..... you do have a point though, and I guess I didn't specify,
so I give you credit for that answer.
"How about the next one?" asks St. Peter. "How many seconds in a year?
"Now that one's harder" says Forrest, "But I thunk and thunk about that and I
guess the only answer can be twelve."
Astounded St. Peter says, "Twelve! Twelve! Forrest, how in Heaven's name could
you come up with twelve seconds in a year?"
Forest says "Shucks, there gotta be twelve: January second, February second,
"Hold it," interrupts St. Peter. "I see where you're going with this, and I
guess I see your point, though that wasn't quite what I had in mind, but I'll
give you credit for that one, too. Let's go on with the next and final
question. Can you tell me God's first name"?
Forrest replied, "Andy."
"OK, OK," said a frustrated St. Peter, "I guess I can understand how you came up
with your answers to my first two questions, but just how in the world did you
came up with the name Andy as the first name of God?"
"That was the easiest one of all," Forrest replied. "I learned it from the song
"ANDY WALKS WITH ME, ANDY TALKS WITH ME, ANDY TELLS ME I AM HIS OWN..."
