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 stated that Jonah was swallowed by a whale. Irritated, the teacher reiterated that a whale could not swallow a human. 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."
As far as I know, Robin Williams never told this joke, but he might have, it sounds like him. It's funny and it make me laugh.
Robin Williams died today and very sad to say, it seems that it was a suicide. I just spoke with my son and Christopher remembers the movies from his childhood...Aladdin, Hook, and Jumanji...all very much loved and fondly remembered.
Does anyone else remember that Robin Williams was raised as an Episcopalian? He once listed the Top Ten Reasons To Be Episcopalian. I found it for you...
10. No snake handling.
9. You can believe in dinosaurs.
8. Male and female God created them; male and female we ordain them.
7. You don't have to check your brains at the door.
6. Pew aerobics.
5. Church year is color-coded.
4. Free wine on Sunday.
3. All of the pageantry - none of the guilt.
2. You don't have to know how to swim to get baptized.
And the Number One reason to be an Episcopalian:
1. No matter what you believe, there's bound to be at least one other Episcopalian who agrees with you
"Wherever there are four Episcopalians, there is bound to be a fifth".
(Sorry, couldn't resist telling you one last joke about Episcopalians...I am sure that Robin must have told that one!)
And just one more joke from Robin... I found this on the BBC!
In England, if you commit a crime, the police don't have a gun and you don't have a gun. If you commit a crime, the police will say, "Stop or I'll say stop again."
My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends. May he rest in the peace of the Lord.
