I'm Allergic to Shell Fish
Two prawns were swimming around in the sea, one called Keith and the other called Kristian.
The prawns were constantly being harassed and threatened by sharks that inhabited the area. Finally one day Keith said to Kristian, '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, Keith turned into a shark.
Horrified, Kristian immediately swam away, afraid of being eaten by his old mate.
Time passed and Keith found life as a shark boring and lonely. All his old mates simply swam away whenever he came close to them. Keith didn't 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 Keith swam back to his friends and bought them all a cocktail..
Looking around the gathering at the reef he realized he couldn't see his old pal.
'Where's Kristian?' he asked.
'He's at home, still distraught that his best friend changed sides to the enemy ans became a shark', came the reply.
Eager to put things right again and end the mutual pain and torture, he set off to Kristian's abode. As he opened the coral gate, memories came flooding back. He banged on the door and shouted, 'It's me, Keith, your old friend, come out and see me again.'
Kristian 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.'
Keith cried back 'No, I'm not. That was the old me. I've changed.'.........
'I've found Cod.
I'm a Prawn again Kristian'
