Keith and I honeymooned in Seattle and Portland. While we were there we noticed that people in the Pacific Northwest don't call shrimp 'shrimp', they call them 'prawns'. Which, to me, makes shrimp even more disgusting than they already are. Prawn is not a pretty word.
You know how in Lion King the word 'Mufasa' makes the hyenas shudder? 'Prawn' does that to me.
Regional dialect is a funny thing.
