Forrest Gump passed away and goes to Heaven.
He is at Pearly Gates and met by St. Peter himself.
However, the gates are closed and Forrest approaches the Gatekeeper.
St. Peter said, “Well, Forrest, it’s really nice to see you. We’ve heard a lot about you. But I have to tell you that the place is filling up fast, and we’ve been administering an entrance examination for everyone.
The test is short, but you must pass it before you can get into Heaven.”
Forrest replied: “It’s good to be here, St. Peter, sir. But no one ever informed me of any entrance exam. I hope the test is not too hard. Life was a big enough test as it was.”
St. Peter continues: “Yes, I know, Forrest, but the test only has 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.
The next day, he comes back 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 says, “Well, the first one – What two days of the week begin with the letter T? Shucks, it’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, and I guess I didn’t specify, so I’ll give you credit for that answer.
How about the next one?” asks St. Peter.
“How many seconds are there 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.”
Confused, St. Peter says, “Twelve? Twelve!?
Forrest, how in Heaven’s name could you come up with twelve seconds in a year?”
Forrest says “Shucks, there’s gotta be twelve: January 2nd, February 2nd, March 2nd. . .”
“Hold it, ” interrupts St. Peter. “I see where you’re going with this, and I see your point, though that wasn’t quite what I had in mind… but I’ll have to give you credit for that one, too. Let’s 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 learned 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.”
Forrest Gump teaches us that being unique and different is not always a disadvantage. He has never seen himself disadvantaged in comparison to others and has shown unbelievable optimism. His distinctive way of perceiving things makes him unique and that is why he is one of our best-loved characters. We love and adore Gump’s character for his loyalty, integrity, perseverance, honesty, and most of all for his unique sense of humor.
Hope this funny story will make you smile! Have a nice day!!
