A little girl spoke to her teacher about whales.
The teacher said it was physically impossible for a whale to swallow a human because even though it is a very large mammal, its throat is very small.
The little girl said, "But how can that be? Jonah was swallowed by a whale."
Irritated, the teacher reiterated that a whale could not swallow a human. "It is physically impossible!" she said.
Undaunted, the little girl said, "Well, when I get to heaven I will ask Jonah."
To this, the teacher said, "What if Jonah went to hell?"
The little girl replied, "Then YOU ask him!"
EVERYBODY HAVE A FUNKDACIOUS WEEKEND!

This is the kind of post this Blog was made for....A Political moment in time...I live here in Philadelphia as you all know if you've been reading this blog...and the Democratic Party is having their National convention here in the city of my birth..The City I still call home...I couldn't be more excited after that Hate fest and Circus in Cleveland last week called the Republican National Convention, but was esssentially the Donald Trump show.
Yesterday..Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigned under pressure as Democratic Party chairwoman, a stunning leadership shakeup as party officials gathered here in Philadelphia to nominate Hillary Clinton.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz's announcement yesterday follows a firestorm over hacked emails suggesting the Democratic National Committee favored Hillary Clinton during the primary, despite pledging neutrality. The leaked emails prompted primary runner-up Bernie Sanders to call for Wasserman Schultz's immediate resignation.
In a statement, Debbie Wasserman Schultz said she will step down at the end of the four-day convention. She said she plans to formally open and close the convention, as well as address delegates.
This could lead to a chorus of boos from Bernie Sanders ,not unlike what happened to Ted Cruz last week at the Republican Convention when he refused to endorse Donald Trump!
Her statement does not address the email controversy.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz's swift ouster underscores party leaders' desire to avoid convention confrontations with Sanders' loyal supporters.
The chairwoman has been a lightning rod for criticism throughout the presidential campaign, with Sanders repeatedly accusing the DNC of backing Hillary Clinton.
Bernie Sanders said the 19,000 emails published by the website Wikileaks appeared to confirm his suspicions.
In one leaked email, a DNC official wondered whether Bernie Sanders' religious beliefs could be used against him, questioning whether the candidate may be an atheist.
Bernie Sanders pressed for Debbie Wasserman Schultz to quit as chairwoman immediately. He also suggested that Clinton's choice of running mate, Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine, was a disappointment and that he would have preferred Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, a favorite of progressives and liberals like myself.
"His political views are not my political views. He is more conservative than I am. Would I have preferred to see somebody like an Elizabeth Warren selected by Secretary Clinton? Yes, I would have," Bernie Sanders told NBC's "Meet the Press."
The Clinton team worked to portray their party's convention in a different light from the just concluded Republican gathering in Cleveland, where Donald Trump accepted the GOP nomination but party divisions flared when his chief rival, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, refused to endorse the billionaire businessman.
Trump cast himself as the law-and-order candidate in a nation suffering under crime and hobbled by immigration, as the GOP convention stuck to a gloom-and-doom theme. Democrats said they wanted to convey a message of optimism and improving the lives of all Americans.
But party disunity also seems to be a factor also here in Philadelphia, given Bernie Sanders' demands for a new leader and general unhappiness among his many supporters about how the nomination process unfolded.
Norman Solomon, a delegate who supports Bernie Sanders, says there is talk among Sanders' delegates of walking out during Kaine's acceptance speech or turning their backs as a show of protest.
Mr.Solomon said he believes a "vast majority" of Sanders delegates support these kinds of protests to express their dismay. Sanders' supporters say they are concerned that Kaine is not progressive enough.
Dan O'Neal, 68, is a retired school teacher and delegate from Arizona, said Debbie Wasserman Schultz has to be censured.
"We knew they were stacking the deck against Bernie from the get-go, but this type of stuff coming out is outrageous," he said. "It proves our point that they've tried to marginalize him and make it as difficult as possible."
Donald Trump's campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, agreed, saying Sanders' supporters "have a lot to complain about."
"The emails have proven the system was rigged from the start," Manafort told "Fox News Sunday."
Hillary Clinton's campaign manager, Robby Mook, tried to shift blame away from DNC officials to "Russian state actors" who, he said, may have hacked into DNC computers "for the purpose of helping Donald Trump," the Republican presidential nominee.
How the emails were stolen hasn't been confirmed.
"It was concerning last week that Donald Trump changed the Republican platform to become what some experts would regard as pro-Russian," Mook said.
Mrs. Clinton is within just days of her long-held ambition to become the party's official presidential nominee.
After the DNC released a slightly trimmed list of superdelegates — those are the party officials who can back any candidate — it now takes 2,382 delegates to formally clinch the nomination.
Hillary Clinton has 2,814 when including superdelegates, according to an Associated Press count. Bernie Sanders has 1,893.
Bernie Sanders has endorsed Clinton, but his delegates are pushing for a state-by-state tally. The state-by-state roll call is scheduled for Tuesday.
Also Sunday, Kaine and his wife, Anne Holton, were back at their longtime church in Richmond, Virginia, a day after he made his campaign debut with Clinton.
Up tonight....First Lady Michelle Obama
Let the Games Begin!

A truck driver was driving between towns on a country road when he spotted a gorgeous woman with huge breasts hitchhiking.
He stopped without hesitation and she climbed into the cab showing mountains of cleavage.
Two miles further down the road, he got a flat, pulled to the side of the road and got out to inspect the tire.
He was fiddling around with the wheel, when the woman opened the window and shouted down, "Do you need a screwdriver?"
The driver replied, all smiles, "Might as well. I can't get this damn hub cap off."
Everybody have a funkdacious and sexilicious weekend!

Of Course today, Everybody is talking about Ted Cruz appeared at the Republican National Convention and DID not endorse Donald trump...and was subsequently booed off the floor..
While that is indeed news worthy...Another Black man was shot last night by police.. An unarmed Black man...Fortunately for him.. He will live to talk about it!
A North Miami, Fla., caretaker was shot and wounded by police Monday as he tried to retrieve a 23-year-old autistic man who had wandered from a mental-health center into the street, the Miami Herald reports.
Cellphone video released Wednesday shows the caretaker, Charles Kinsey, lying on the ground, with his hands in the air, trying to reason with police officers as they approach Kinsey and his patient, the autistic man.
Charles Kinsey said that before he got shot, he was trying to calm his patient, who can be heard in the video screaming at Charles Kinsey to “shut up.”
“Rinaldo, please be still. Rinaldo, sit down. Rinaldo, lay on your stomach,” Charles Kinsey ..can be heard on the video telling his patient.
Then Charles Kinsey is shot in the leg by a police officer.
“I’m like this right here, and when he shot me, it was so surprising,” Charles Kinsey said. “It was like a mosquito bite, and when it hit me, I’m like, ‘I still got my hands in the air, and I said, ‘No, I just got shot! And I’m saying, ‘Sir, why did you shoot me?’ and his words to me, he said, ‘I don’t know.’'
“My life flashed in front of me,” he added. “When he hit me, my first thing I’m thinking, I’m thinking about my family.”
According to WSVN, Kinsey said that what upset him most about the incident was what happened after he was shot.
“They flipped me over, and I’m faced down in the ground, with cuffs on, waiting on the rescue squad to come. I’d say about 20, about 20 minutes it took the rescue squad to get there. And I was like, bleeding—I mean bleeding—and I was like, ‘Wow,’” he told the news station.
On Wednesday evening, a group called the Circle of Brotherhood, which works to solve problems in the community, stood outside the North Miami Police Department, demanding answers in the shooting. Charles Kinsey is a member of the organization.
Unlike others...He will live to tell his story...He won't be easily demonized in death..Since he's fortunately still amongst the living..He was compliant aND HE STILL GOT SHOT!!
So tell me again how All lives matter and how Blue Lives matter!!!
Everybody's damn life seems to matter except a Black life!
