Water is an excellent source of inspiration for jokes. After all, there's rather a lot of it all around us, with everything from oceans and seas to rivers and lakes to look to for your watery puns and jokes.  

Water can be so much fun even before you make a joke out of it. Everyone loves a good splash about in a paddling or swimming pool or spraying their friends with a hose on hot days! And, on holiday we like nothing better than a dip in the sea or messing about in a boat on the river.

And, then, of course, there's the mind-blowing fact that 60% of our bodies are made up of water (make that 78% if you're a newborn!) and every living thing on earth relies on water for its survival. In fact, astronomers search for water out in space to try and find signs of other life.

Now that you're up to date with all your water facts, it's time to learn some funny water jokes to go with them, including jokes and puns about the ocean as well as jokes about wet weather. You might feel rather thirsty after laughing at all of these, so remember to have a glass of water handy to wet your whistle afterwards!
