New reality show about shrimp fishing called

Prawn Stars. with the Grumpy old guy who should have retired 10 years ago, his son the current owner, and his son learning the business and his friend who sits around and doesn't seem much of anything except make inane and sometimes revealing an absolute failure to have learned anything in school or anywhere else.

Nah, that was a movie, Doug, not a reality TV series.

No hint of a Lieutenant Dan either.

It's because I spent too long in Britain where shrimp are called prawns. "I'll have the Prawn Cocktail to start, please."

But thanks for getting it and not wanting to throw it away. Pun-ditry is an under-appreciated art form.

When I was growing up and visited my dad

in Mississippi, prawns were large shrimp. I remember you could go to any eatery and, no matter what you ordered, you would get a side of shrimp. Mom talked about going down to the docks when the boats came in with newspapers with me and they would give us lots of shrimp. She said it was because I was cute.
