Jonah and the Teacher

A little girl was talking to her teacher about whales and how she had heard in Sunday School about how a whale had swallowed Jonah.

 

The teacher said it was physically impossible for a whale to swallow a human because even though it was a very large mammal its throat was very small.

 

The little girl remained steadfast in her position and reiterated that indeed, a whale had swallowed Jonah.

 

Irritated, the teacher again stated that a whale could not swallow a human; it was physically impossible.

 

The little girl said, “I’m not sure how it happened, but when I get to heaven I will ask Jonah.”

 

The teacher replied smugly, “What if Jonah isn’t in heaven?”

 

The little girl replied, “Then you ask him.”
