From Prawn to Shark and Back Again: The Tale of Justin and Christian – Joke

From Prawn to Shark and Back Again 2 - From Prawn to Shark and Back Again: The Tale of Justin and Christian - Joke

Far away in the tropical waters of the Coral Sea, two prawns named Justin and Christian swam about. They faced constant harassment and threats from the sharks that inhabited the area. One day, Justin expressed his frustration to Christian: “I’m tired of being a prawn. I wish I were a shark; then I wouldn’t have to worry about being eaten.”

Suddenly, a large, mysterious cod appeared and granted Justin’s wish. Lo and behold, Justin transformed into a shark. Horrified, Christian fled, fearing he’d become Justin’s next meal.

As time passed, Justin discovered that life as a shark was dull and lonely. His old prawn friends now avoided him. Justin realized that his menacing appearance was the cause of his isolation. Swimming alone one day, he encountered the mysterious cod again. Perhaps this fish could change him back into a prawn.

Justin pleaded with the cod, and miraculously, he transformed back into a prawn. Tears of joy filled his tiny eyes as he swam back to his friends, treating them to cocktails. But there was a twist—the punch line didn’t involve a prawn cocktail.

Curious about Christian, Justin asked where he was. The reply came: “He’s at home, still distraught that his best friend switched sides and became a shark.” Determined to mend their friendship, Justin headed to Christian’s abode.

As he opened the coral gate, memories flooded back. Justin knocked on the door and shouted, “It’s me, Justin, your old friend! Come out and see me again!” But Christian remained wary: “No way, man! You’re a shark now—the enemy. I won’t be tricked into becoming your dinner.”

Justin insisted, “No, that was the old me. I’ve found Cod. I’m a Prawn again, Christian.
