A little girl spoke to her teacher about whales. The teacher said it was physically impossible for a whale to swallow a human because even though it is a very large mammal, its throat is very small. The little girl said, But how can that be? Jonah was swallowed by a whale. Irritated, the teacher reiterated that a whale could not swallow a human. It is physically impossible! she said. Undaunted, the little girl said, Well, when I get to heaven I will ask Jonah. To this, the teacher said, What if Jonah went to hell?
