Is God a biker?

A little boy wanted to meet God. He knew it was a long trip to where God lived, so he packed his suitcase with twinkies and a six-pack of root beer and he started his journey.

When he had gone about three blocks, he met a long-haired, bearded biker sitting by his motorcycle. He was in the park just relaxing amongst nature and staring at some gulls.

The boy sat down next to the biker and opened his suitcase. He was about to take a drink from his root beer when he noticed that the bearded man looked a little hungry so he offered him a twinkie. The biker gratefully accepted it and smiled warmly at the boy. His smile was so pretty and his eyes gleamed so warmly that the boy wished to see the smile again, so he offered him a root beer. Again, the friendly man smiled nicely at the boy. The child was delighted!

The two of them sat there all afternoon munching on twinkies and smiling happily, but they never exchanged a word.

As darkness came, the boy realised how tired he was and he got up to leave, but before he had gone more than a few steps he turned around, ran back to the handsome bearded man and gave him a hug. The biker gave the boy his biggest, warmest smile ever as the boy ran off to his home. When the boy opened the door to his own house a short time later, his mother was surprised by the look of joy on his face.

She asked him, “What did you do today that made you so happy?”

He replied, “I had lunch with God.” But before his mother could respond, he added, “You know what? He’s got the coolest motorcycle I’ve ever seen!” His mother just stood there with her mouth wide open.

Meanwhile, the lonely bearded man, also radiant with joy, returned to his home. His pet mouse was so awestruck by the look of peace on his face that he asked, “Hey, what did you do today that made you so happy?”

He replied, “I ate twinkies in the park with God.” And before the little pet mouse responded, he added, “You know, God’s much younger than I expected.” 

Twinkie is a small finger-shaped sponge cake with a synthetic cream filling. Root beer is an effervescent drink made from an extract of the roots and bark of certain plants. Both are popular in North America.
