Two prawns were swimming around in the sea
One called Justin and the other called Kristian.
The prawns were constantly being harassed and threatened by sharks that inhabited the area.
Finally one day Justin 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, Justin turned into a shark.
Horrified, Kristian 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.
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 & 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, Justin, 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.'
Justin cried back 'No, I'm not. That was the old me. I've changed.'.........

'I've found Cod. I'm a
Prawn again Kristian'
An Indian (feather, casino) Chief decides to take three wives. He asks the first what she wants for her wedding present, and she says a deer hide to make her bed. That was easy for the Chief. The second wife wanted a bear hide for her present. A bit harder on the chief, with the whole bear teeth and claws to contend with problem. The third wife being a bit eccentric asked for a hippopotamus hide to make her bed. The Chief had a streak of good luck, as a traveling circus train had an accident, and the hippo walked away from the wreck to later fall to the Chief's arrows.

All three wives were soon pregnant, and the next Spring, they all had their babies. The squaw on the deer hide had a little boy. The squaw on the bear hide had a little girl, and the squaw on the hippo hide had a little boy and a little girl.

Which once again proves, that the sum of the squaw on the hippopotamus is equal to the sum of the squaws on the other two hides!
