    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.

    The prawns were constantly being harassed and threatened by sharks that patrolled the area.

    Finally, one day during a tropical storm, Justin said to Christian "I'm bored and frustrated at being a prawn, I wish I was a shark - then I wouldn't have any worries about being eaten..."

    As Justin had his mind firmly on becoming a predator, a flash of lightning hit the water and, lo and behold, Justin turned into a shark.

    Horrified, Christian immediately swam away, afraid of being eaten by his old mate.

    Time went on (as it invariably does...) and Justin found himself becoming bored and lonely as a shark. 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.

    During the next tropical storm, Justin figured that the same lightning force could change him back into a prawn.
    Lightning never strikes twice except in stories like these, but while he was thinking of being a prawn again, a flash of lightning struck the water next to Justin and, lo and behold, he 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 punchline does not involve a prawn cocktail - it's much worse).

    Looking around the gathering at the reef, he searched for his old pal. "Where's Christian?" he asked.

    "He's at home, distraught that his best friend changed sides to the enemy and 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 house.

    As he opened the coral gate, the 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 a shark, the enemy. I will not be tricked".

    Justin cried back "No I'm not. That was the old me. I've changed......... I'm a prawn again Christian...!!!"

    That reminds me. I ment to post this ages ago, but I forgot. Beaker Sings Yellow By Coldplay
    How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror.

    Seems to be a song that people love or hate - personally I love it.
