Can a whale swallow a human?

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, its throat was very small.

The little girl argued that Jonah was swallowed by a whale (according to the Bible). 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 will ask Jonah,"

The teacher asked, "What if Jonah went to hell?"

The little girl replied, "Then you ask him".
