He is at the Pearly Gates, met by St. Peter himself.
However, the gates are closed, and
Forrest approaches the gatekeeper.
"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."
"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."
"Yes, I know, Forrest, but the test has only three questions.
What two days of the week begin with the letter T?
How many seconds are there in a year?
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"
which two days in the week begins with the letter "T"?
Shucks, that one is easy.
That would be Today and Tomorrow."
"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."
Forrest, how in Heaven's name could you
Come up with twelve seconds in a year?"
"Shucks, there's got to be twelve:
January 2nd, February 2nd, March 2nd ... "
"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"?
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?"
"I learned it from the song,
'ANDY WALKS WITH ME,
ANDY TALKS WITH ME,
ANDY TELLS ME I AM HIS OWN.' "
"Run , Forrest, run!"
