A Post Father's Day Joke

Jesus was making his usual rounds in heaven when he noticed a wizened, white-haired old man sitting in a corner looking very disconsolate.

"See here, old friend," said Jesus kindly, "this is Heaven. The sun is shining, you've got all you could want to eat, all the instruments you might want to play--you're supposed to be blissfully happy! What's wrong?"

"Well," said the old man, "you see, I was a carpenter on earth, and lost my dearly beloved son at an early age. And here in heaven I was hoping more than anything to find him."

Tears sprang to Jesus's eyes. "FATHER!" he cried.

The old man jumped to his feet, bursting into tears, and shouted, "PINOCCHIO!"

(from the brilliant Aristotle and an Aardvark Go To Washington by Thomas Cathcart and Daniel Klein, which will make you think of logic and argument in an entirely new way.)
