A Whale Of A Tale

Kids, in their innocent naivety, say the darnedest things, especially when they’re in school…

A little girl was talking to her teacher about whales. The teacher said it was physically impossible for a whale to swallow a human because even though they were a very large mammal their throat was very small.

The little girl stated Jonah was swallowed by a whale. The teacher reiterated a whale could not swallow a human; it was 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.”

The little was, of course, expelled from the school immediately thereafter. The school board informed her parents that, while “sassing” her teacher was permissible – they would never do anything to stunt her self-actualization – her referencing the Bible in the classroom was an act of bullying and religious intolerance, showing her deep-rooted Christian Privilege. They have a Zero Tolerance Policy about such things.
