One day Jesus was walking by the pearly gates when St. Peter asked him to watch the gates for a few minutes. Jesus agreed and in a few minutes he saw an old, old man approach. He walked very slowly, had a halting gait, and long white hair and beard.
“How did you spend your life on earth my son?” asked Jesus.
“I was a simple carpenter for sixty years” replied the old man.
“And what do you hope to find here in heaven,” asked Jesus.
“I hope to find my son” said the man.
“Well there are millions upon millions of people here, how will you find him?”
“I’ll recognize him by the nail holes in his hands and feet,” states the old man.
Jesus does a double take, thinks for a moment and asks, “Father???”
The old man looks at Jesus and says, “Pinocchio?”
