A "Real Strawberry" to plant Strawberries?

Why can't I use a real strawberry to plant strawberries. I mean it has seeds on it .. I planted apple seeds from an apple I ate- and they grew. Has ANYONE ever gotten strawberries from the actual strawberry itself?

actually, after composting a batch of leftover assorted strawberry pieces from my kiddos they began to grow.  i recently removed them from my composting section of my garden and planted them in a container and they are doing fantastic.  no fruit yet but they appear to be close...

I've never done but would love to try. Maybe the seeds need to dry out first?

My grandfather did it once. I think he removed the seeds and sprouted them on wet paper towels and planted the ones that sprouted (this was years and years ago so I could be forgetting something. He was so proud of those plants.
