Prawns Do Not Like Sharks

Clip_177Far away in the tropical waters of the Coral Sea , two prawns  were swimming around.  One  called Justin and the other called  Christian.

The  prawns were constantly being harassed and threatened by sharks that inhabited the area.
Finally one day Justin said to Christian,  ‘I’m fed up with being  a prawn; I wish I was a shark, and then I  wouldn’t have any worries about being  eaten.’
A  large mysterious cod appeared and said, ‘Your wish is  granted’.
Lo and  behold, Justin turned into a shark.
Horrified, Christian immediately swam away,  afraid of being  eaten by his old mate.

Time  passed (as it does) and Justin found life as a shark  boring and lonely.
All his old mates simply swam away whenever he came close to them.
Justin began to realize that his new menacing appearance was the cause of his sad plight.
While swimming alone one day he saw the mysterious cod again and he thought perhaps the  mysterious fish could change him back into a prawn.
He approached the cod and begged to be changed back, and, lo and behold, he found himself turned back into a prawn.

With tears of joy in his tiny little eyes Justin swam back to his friends and bought them all a  cocktail.
(The  punch line does not involve a prawn cocktail – it’s much  worse).

Looking around the gathering at the reef he  realized he  couldn’t see his old pal.

‘Where’s Christian?’ he  asked. ‘He’s at home, still distraught that his best friend changed sides to the enemy & became a shark’, came the  reply.
Eager  to put things right again and end the mutual pain and  torture, he set off to Christian’s  abode.
As he opened the coral gate, memories came flooding  back.
He  banged on the door and shouted, ‘It’s me, Justin, your old friend, come out and see me again.’
Christian replied, ‘No way man, you’ll eat me.  You’re now  a shark, the enemy, and I’ll not be tricked into being your  dinner.’
Justin  cried back ‘No, I’m not. That was the old me. I’ve  changed.’………..
