Carpenter at the Gates of Heaven

Published on Mon 18 October 1999

Saint Peter is standing at the gates of Heaven when nature calls. He asks Jesus to take his place and tells Jesus what to do.

After a while, an old man approaches the gates and Jesus proceeds to ask him some questions, "What was your occupation?"

The old man answers, "I was a carpenter."

Jesus asks, "Did you have any children?"

"Well," answers the old man, "I had a son, but he left me a long time ago. He had holes in his hands and feet."

"Father?" asks Jesus surprised.

The old man asks, "Pinocchio?"
