techincally not aikido related but who cares thats a damn good joke!

dont suppose you've heard the prawn one?

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 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

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 and

I'll not be tricked. " Justin cried back "No, I'm not. That was the old me.

I've changed."

Wait for it

Wait for it

"I'm a prawn again Christian".

I'm really soooo sorry about that
