Artists impression of what a Large Tiger Prawn will look like cooked....when they eventually manage to catch one

After 10 years of careful breeding and research, Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) scientists have created a larger tiger prawn which will reduce the need to import the popular seafood platter and barbecue food.

So reads the headline in a popular online newspaper.

The reason behind wanting a larger tiger prawn is obvious to people who love to barbecue.

Skinnier, smaller prawns fall through the spaces between grill bars and burn on the hot coals beneath, rendering them inedible.

The newly developed, larger tiger prawn looks more like a small lobster, but it is, nevertheless, still a prawn.

They will be available to the general public as soon as they can be caught. They are reportedly very fast swimmers and nip like hell. They have an acute sense of hearing and can hear a ripple in the water as far away as 15 m.

They swim in shoals and, if caught, easily cut their way through the nets used at present.

Scientists are now working to develop a decent net with which to catch the little beggars.

Morrisons have a half-price sale on tampons, if purchased by men for their girlfriends or wives and carried home without a plastic bag for all to see.

The sale price is for purchases of 12 or more boxes.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
