When Was The Last Time You Had A Good Laugh
Ecclessiates 3:4 - "A time to weep and a time to laugh;…" NASU
Solomon tells us there is a time to laugh, but some how the times seem to far a few in between. So with that in mind I thought I would use today's Pump Ups to make you laugh. Please know there is absolutely nothing true about this Joke. It is a joke. It has been made up by someone to cause us to laugh. I hope that it succeeds with you.
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 isn'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 think the questions over and says, '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.'
Peter'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 about that, and I guess the only answer can be twelve.'
Astounded, St. Peter said, '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 St Peter.
"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.'
I hope today will be a day filled with laughter for you.
Think On This:
Laughter is the shock absorber that eases the blows of life.
Blessed is the man that can laugh at himself, for he will never cease to be amused.
