Crunches and Burning Calories

Just curious but does anyone know how many calories one burns when doing crunches (calories per crunch....lol)? I can't seem to find any numbers on it. The only thing I've found can't be true. It says doing 300 crunches burns 300 calories. But one can do 300 crunches in about 15 minutes tops while you could only burn 300 calories while jogging if you jog at around 5.4 miles per hour for 30 minutes! Sorry to be so long winded, I just got sorta curious about it today.

According to this site, 15 minutes of fast situps would burn about 122 calories.
