A man who was sizing up God by asking, “God how long is a million years to you?”

God said, “A million years is like a second.”

Then the man asked, “Well, then, how much is a million dollars to you?”

God said, “A million dollars is like a penny.”

The man smiled and said, “Could you spare me a penny?”

God smiled back and said, “Sure, just wait a second.”
