Jesus and His Father

Jesus was taking his turn at the Pearly Gates. Looking along the queue of people waiting to enter he spotted an old man who looked familiar. When the old man got to the front of the queue Jesus was sure that he recognized him.

“Occupation?” said Jesus.

“Carpenter.” replied the old man.

“Err. Did you have a son who appeared under amazing circumstances?” asked Jesus.

“Why yes!” said the old man.

Getting excited Jesus asked “Did your son have holes in his hands and feet?”

“That’s right.”, said the old man, “He did.”

With delight Jesus exclaimed, “Father!”

Puzzled the old man replied, “Pinochio?”
