Up there in the tropical waters of North Queensland , two prawns were swimming around in the sea. One was called Justin and the other called Christian.

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

Finally one day Justin said to Christian, '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, Justin turned into a shark. Horrified, Christian immediately swam away, afraid of being eaten by his old mate.

Time passed (as it 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 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 Justin swam back to his friends and bought them all a cocktail.

(The punch line does not involve a prawn cocktail - it's much worse)..

Looking around the gathering at the reef he realized 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.'........

Bored...............................Here's another "fish" related joke:

A fish goes into a bank and approaches the teller. He can see from her nameplate that the teller's name is Patricia Whack.

So he says, "Ms. Whack, I'd like to get a loan to buy a boat and go

on a long vacation .”

Patti looks at the fish in disbelief and asks how much he wants to borrow.

The fish says “$30,000.”

The teller asks his name and the fish says that his name is Rainbow Jagger, his dad is Mick Jagger, and that it's okay, he knows the bank manager.

Patti explains that $30,000 is a substantial amount of money and that he will need to secure some collateral against the loan.

She asks if he has anything he can use as collateral.

The fish says, "Sure, I have this," and produces a tiny porcelain fly rod and reel, about an inch long; detailed and perfectly formed.

Very confused, Patti explains that she'll have to consult with the manager and disappears into a back office.

She finds the manager and says, "There's a fish named Rainbow Jagger out there who claims to know you and wants to borrow $30,000. And he wants to use this as collateral."

She holds up the tiny rod & reel. "I mean, what the heck is this??"

The bank manager looks back at her and says: "It's a knick-knack, Patti Whack. Give the fish a loan. His old man's a Rolling Stone."

LAST ONE ...........

A young zealous boy wanted desperately to work at a department store. He approached the store manager who responded they needed no help.

Quite persistent, the boy returned again and again until the manager finally said "We're having a holiday sale tomorrow. Why don't you show up and you can give it a try."

The elated boy returned the following day and proceeded to sell. At the end of the day the store manager called the youngster over and asked how he had done.

The boy responded that he had sold $79,083.50 worth of merchandise. The manager asked how he had done so well.

The young man said,

"Well this guy was going fishing so I asked if he wanted some fish hooks, he said sure, That's $1.50.”

“I asked if he had a nice fishing pole, he said no, so I got a graphite extension pole for $43.50”.

“Do you have a nice reel, not yet replied the customer... so I got him a nice quick release reel for $35.00.”

“I asked where he was going fishing and he said Strawberry Reservoir. I told him the best places to catch fish are near the center.”

"Do you have a boat? The man said he didn't so I set him up with a nice outboard 30 foot cruiser for $28,000.00.”

“Then I asked if he had a trailer. He didn't, so I got him a double axle trailer for $3,000.00.”

“Then I asked what he had to tow the boat. He only had a station wagon, so I told him that just wouldn't do, but we could get him a nice fully loaded Dodge Ram dually, racked and packed with a tow package, trailer hitch and everything for $48,000.00.”

“He wanted it all."

As you can imagine the store manager was astounded.

"And to think it all began with that man asking for a package of fish hooks?"

The boy replied, "Oh no, it all began with him asking for some tampons which were $3.50, so I replied, Well you aren't going to be doing much else this weekend, you might as well go fishing!"
