Forrest Gump Meets St. Peter

The day 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 was thinking, but ..... you do have a point though, and I guess I
didn't specify, so I will 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's gotta be twelve: January second,
February second, March second, April second, May 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?"

Without hesitation 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 hymn ..... "ANDY WALKS WITH ME, ANDY TALKS WITH ME, ANDY
