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.
â€œHow did you spend your life on earth my son?â€ asked Jesus.
â€œI was a simple carpenter for sixty yearsâ€ replied the old man.
â€œAnd what do you hope to find here in heaven,â€ asked Jesus.
â€œI hope to find my sonâ€ said the man.
â€œWell there are millions upon millions of people here, how will you find him?â€
â€œIâ€™ll recognize him by the nail holes in his hands and feet,â€ states the old man.
Jesus does a double take, thinks for a moment and asks, â€œFather???â€
The old man looks at Jesus and says, â€œPinocchio?â€
