One day at the Pearly Gates,
As Saint Pete was getting older,
Jesus happened by-by fate,
And Pete said "Would you take over?"

"I need a break to stretch my legs,
Would you watch the gate for me?"
Being the kindest man that ever lived,
He said, "Sure, take a break old Pete."

A moment later came a man,
Quite old and shedding tears,
Asking about his long lost son,
He hadn't seen in years.

Jesus said, "Well tell me sir,
About this missing lad?"
The man said he's quite unusual,
With the "scarring" that he had."

He said, "It is my son you see,
He has holes in his hands and feet,"
Jesus stood back and said with glee;
"Father dear I'd wondered, when again we'd meet."

The man looked up with tearful joy,
Said, "I can't believe it's true,
Are you my one and only son?
Pinnochio...Is that you?"

You are the king of the surprise ending, Toe!
You got me on this one, too!

Your life must pass through the press of passion and pain to yield the wine of wisdom..

RG: I don't think there's any doubt how you or Toe will be greeted... God will have his arms open wide with welcome for sweet Toe... and a whole host of angels will be wondering how you managed to steal their halos! *G*
