    Default Should children be taught that prawn is not real?

    I see no reason why - Dimprawn usually sounds pretty convincing to me.

    Living so far north some people might assume he was like Father Christmas, and not real, but it would be cruel to shatter kids illusions by claiming he doesn't exist.

    Youv'e ruined it for me - I thought Dim was the Earl of Swindon, a real person.

    I will have to cry myself to sleep now knowing he is not real

    He lives north of Newcastle last I heard. I daren't be more specific, as he's reputed to have a gold stash buried at the bottom of his garden.

    It's not the prawn that's not real - it's crab sticks.

    I was miserable and depressed, but CUK turned it all around. Now I'm depressed and miserable.
