On Entering The Pearly Gate

Martin died and went to heaven. When he got to the pearly gate Saint Peter told him that new rules were in effect due to the advances in education on earth. In order to gain admittance a prospective heavenly soul must answer three questions:

1. Name two days of the week that begin with “T”.

2. How many seconds are in a year?

3. What is God’s first name?

Martin  thought for a few minutes and answered…

1. The two days of the week that begin with “T” are Today and Tomorrow.

2. There are 12 seconds in a year.

3. God has two first names, and they are Andy and Howard.”

Saint Peter said, “OK, I’ll buy the Today and Tomorrow, even though it’s not the answer I expected, so your answer is correct.

But how did you get 12 seconds in a year, and why did you ever think that God’s first name was either Andy or Howard?”

Martin replied, “Well, January 2nd, February 2nd,March 2nd, etc….”

“OK, I give,” said Saint Peter, “but what about the God’s first name stuff?”

Martin said, “Well, from the song….Andy walks with me, Andy talks with me, Andy tells me I am his own…, and the prayer…Our Father, who art in heaven, Howard be thy name….”

Saint Peter let him in without another word.
