    Before I start, yes, I know it wasn't a whale, it was a "big fish" but the story doesn't work with "big fish."
    One day, a teacher was talking to her first grade class about whales when a little girl had a question.

    Little Girl: “Do whales swallow people?”

    Teacher: “No, even though they are much bigger than a person, they have throat pleats that filter their food of krill and plankton.

    Little Girl: “But Mrs. Thurston at my Sunday school says Jonah was swallowed by a whale.”

    Teacher getting angry: “The biggest whales, the blue whales, still cannot swallow people!”

    Little Girl: “Well, when I get to heaven I’ll just ask Jonah if he was really swallowed by a whale.”

    Teacher, still red with anger: “What if Jonah went to hell?”

    Girl: “Well, then you can ask him.”
