The day finally arrives, Forrest Gump dies and goes to Heaven. He is at the Pearly Gates and is met by Saint Peter himself. However, the gates are
Saint Peter says, "Well, Forrest, it''s 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've been administering an entrance examination for everyone.

Forrest responds, "It sure is good to be here Saint Peter, sir, but nobody ever told me about any entrance exam, sure hope the test isn't too hard; life was a big enough test as it was."
Saint Peter goes on, "Yes, I know, Forrest, but the test is 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 Saint 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, which two days in the week begin with the letter T?" Shucks, that one's easy. That'd be Today and Tomorrow."

How about the next one?" asks Saint Peter. "How many seconds in a year?"
Forrest says, "Shucks, there's gotta be twelve: January 2nd, February 2nd, March 2nd ..."
"Sure," Forrest replied, "it's Andy."
