a joke

    Far away in the tropical waters of the Caribbean, two prawns were
    swimming around in the sea - one called Justin and the other called Christian.

    Finally one day Justin said to Christian, "I'm fed up with being a prawn, I wish I was a shark, then
    I wouldn't have any worries about being eaten."

    A large mysterious cod appeared and said, "Your wish is granted" and 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 invariably 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 didn't realise 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.
    Looking around the gathering at the reef he realised 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."......"I've found Cod. I'm a Prawn again, Christian".

    It got me lolling........

    My dear 88yo Mum's favourite.....A young Scotsman moved to Australia. He wrote to his Mum back home that Australians are a strange lot. The neighbour on one side of his unit sobbed and banged on his wall all night. The other neighbour would continually scream obscenities at him.

    But, he said, he coped by sitting in his bedroom and playing his bag-pipes.

    Ellie - good joke!

    One good turn deserves another so here is my attempt at a joke.

    The attractive young teacher makes it clear to the class of fifteen year olds, that there will be no acceptable excuse for missing the exam next day.

    One wise ass, pipes up, 'Suppose I was- say - sexually exhausted - Miss?'

    'No excuse.' Replies teacher. ' You would just have to take the exam using your other hand!'
