Saturday’s smiles

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’.

    An Atheist professor was lecturing his class on the non existence of God.

    “If God exists”, he began. “then I challenge him to come down and strike me down where I stand”

    “You will see, it will not happen”

    Just then a student on a Wrestling scholarship stood up, walked casually down to the front of the class and punched the professor in the jaw sending him sprawling to the floor

    “What was that for?”, asked the professor rubbing his jaw as he picked himself up.

    “God is kind of busy right now”, replied the scholar, “and sent me to do the striking down”

    That is not remotely funny Andrei. The “let me be thy instrument” types are the monsters of every religion. Feared throughout history.

    Theologically speaking Will we could also take exception to Ele’s joke as well

    St Nicholas, the prototype of jolly old Santa Claus, in his lifetime was once imprisoned for punching a fellow Bishop with whom he had a theological argument on the nose.

    It’s a joke Will – last week I posted one poking fun at my own confession – its ritualism and obsession with tradition
