The piece of cod that surpasseth all understanding?



Many thanks to Leigh for the following fishy story: really funny!


Far away in the tropical waters of the Coral Sea, two prawns were swimming around; one called Justin, one called Christian. The prawns were constantly being harassed and threatened by the sharks that inhabited the area.
Finally one day, Justin said to his mate Christian: "I'm fed up with being a prawn. I wish I was a shark and then I wouldn't have to worry about being eaten."
Suddenly, a large mysterious cod appeared and said: "Your wish is granted!" Lo and behold, Justin turned into a shark.
Horrified, Christian swam swiftly away, afraid of being eaten by his old mate.
Time passed, as it does, and Justin found life as a shark really boring and lonely. His old mates simply swam away when he came close to them.
While swimming alone one day, he saw the mysterious cod again and decided to ask to be changed back into a prawn.
He begged the cod to be changed back; lo and behold, he was a prawn once more!
With tears of joy in his tiny eyes, Justin swam back to his old friends. Looking around the reef, he realised he couldn't see his old pal Christian.
"Where's Christian?" he asked.
"He's at home," came the reply, "Still terrified that his best friend changed sides to become a shark."
Eager to put things right, Justin set off for his friend's abode.
As he opened the coral gate, memories came flooding back. He banged on the door and shouted: "It's me, Justin! Come out and see me!"
Christian replied: "No way man! You'll eat me - I'll not be tricked into being your dinner."
Justin cried back: "That was the old me! I've changed................

(wait for it)

........... I've found cod - I'm a prawn again Christian!"
