The 60 Very Best Water Puns and Jokes

Water is all around us, covering about two-thirds of the Earth’s surface, yet besides all the oceans, seas, lakes, rivers, icebergs and whatnot, water is inside us as well. We carry water inside ourselves, not just inside our bellies but also inside our organs and skin, even our bones carry water!

Water was always a great source of inspiration throughout history, a lot of great novels have been written when the author was at sea, staring out into the stretched out, blue horizon. While that sight might sound calming to you, water can be very dangerous, as any sailor who’s gone through a storm can tell you, but you’ve already seen Titanic.
