A young girl was talking to her teacher about whales.
“You have to be careful swimming in the sea in case a whale eats you,” the pupil said.
Her teacher said there was no need to worry, it was physically impossible for a whale to swallow a human. Even though it was a very large mammal its throat was very small.
The little girl thought for a moment then said, “That can’t be right, Jonah was swallowed by a whale”.
The teacher shook her head then reiterated that a whale couldn’t swallow a human, even a small one; it was physically impossible.
The little girl said, ‘When I get to heaven I will ask Jonah’.
The teacher asked, ‘What if Jonah went to hell?’
The little girl replied, ‘Then you ask him’.
