You get that sinking feeling...

Of the three sisters, only Olympic lived to see the end of WWI. Ironically, she was the first launched. Titanic struck an iceberg and sank, Britannic struck a mine/torpedo and sank. Poor track record.

Edit: I love this old picture showing Titanic during construction in Belfast, sitting just next to its "sister" Olympic

And the deaths of those on board are just the tip of the iceberg! Think of all the families that were torn apart before you make offensive puns!

Punitive retribution... bad jokes ahoy!

Q: What sits on the bottom of the Ocean and shakes?
A: A nervous wreck.

Q: What's a sign that you have an irrational fear of icebergs?
A: You start having water-tight compartments installed in your pants.

In England in 1912 a guy found a lamp and suddenly a genie popped out. The genie said, "I will grant you one wish."
The guy was not well-to-do, so he said, "I want to live in luxury for the rest of my life."
"Fine," said the genie, "Here's a first class ticket for the Titanic."

What goes down well with ice? The Titanic!

Titanic was about to sink. People on the ship were shouting, crying, running and praying. A passenger went up to the captain to ask him a question.
Passenger: How far are we from land?
Captain: Two miles...
Passenger: Only two miles, then why are these fools making so much noise. I can swim that far easily.
Captain:.....Uh????
Passenger: In which direction should I swim?
Captain: Downward..

I'd be shocked, but I get stuff like this from my students all day.

Ohhhh... they made the ship titanic and they made her out of steel
They said no storm will ever break her keel
But god raised his hand and shot a rubber band
and the greatest ship went dooown....


It was sad... so sad (It wasn't happy)
It was sad when the greatest ship went down
to the bottom of the, husbands and wives, little children they all died
It was sad when the greatest ship went down.

Removing the original soundtrack alone made that trailer worth watching :sorcerer:

Holy Crap, SA, you're old enough you were probably a passenger on the Titanic. Bastard. If you report me, I'll either deny the whole thing or blame it on the Jameson.

I'll just point out that, having endured three viewings of Titanic for various people, nine hours is about seven hours too long for the film.
