Death is portrayed as a hungry monster... always wanting to swallow up or consume the Living

Numbers 16:34 34 And all Israel who were around them fled at their cry, for they said, "Lest the earth swallow us up!"

Jonah and the fish are an appropriate picture - death swallows up the One who gives up His Spirit - yet death cannot hold Him

but in this case.. if the story of Jonah were to continue like that...

Jonah now would sit down and eat the entire fish for breakfast:
Isaiah 25:8 8 He will swallow up death forever; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from all faces, and the reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, for the LORD has spoken.

or perhaps
from inside the fish... Jonah would begin to eat it whole.... ?

something like this:
