Heaven Is for Real, a movie based on a book of the same wonderful name, is currently out in theaters. It tells the story of a little boy who claims to have died and visited Heaven in the midst of a harrowing operation. The story is written by the boy's parents, Nebraska-based pastor Todd Burpo and Sonja Burpo. Now an unverified Twitter account purporting to be that of Colton Burpo — the little boy (now age fourteen) at the center of the story — has been promoting the film rigorously. The majority of these tweets share tidbits about what Heaven is like, based on Colton's visit there. It seems like a fun place, especially if you're a little boy and have common little boy interests, like pets and racecar beds and Greg Kinnear.


And so, here are some of our favorite Heaven is for Real tweets. With reactions by puppies, because this is the Internet and you clicked on this and now this is your fault. I'm just kidding. There are no puppies in Hell:
