“Never Argue With Children” – Rosalee Zeno

This anecdote was written by my Momo (grandmother), Rosalee Zeno and shared with me. I Love and miss you Momo.

Rosalee Zeno. I skipped class this day to take her out to eat. 🙂

“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 it was a very large mammal, it’s throat was very small.


The little girl stated that Jonah was swallowed by a whale. Irritated, the teacher reiterated that a whale could not swallow a human; it was physically impossible.

The little girl said, “when I get to heaven I’ll ask Jonah. The teacher asked, “what if Jonah went to hell?”

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