What goes down well with ice? The Titanic!

Did you know there are Titanic jokes out there?  Of course there are.

Besides the one that's the title of this post, there are others.  Some are even slightly funny:

What do you get if you cross the Atlantic Ocean with the Titanic? About halfway!

Passenger: How far are we from land? 
Captain: Two miles... 
Passenger: which direction? 
Captain: Down

I like these New Yorker-esque Titanic cartoons  :-)

There are lots of visual jokes about the movie.  Her's a poster with one of the less, ahem, racy jokes.

Of course, the Titanic theme--full steam ahead into the icebergs with rich unbelieving folks ahead--is used in LOTS of (usually visual) jokes and cartoons.

But, warning . . . !

Comedian Tim Heidecker responded to the news about Bob Dylan's upcoming Titanic song by writing a Bob Dylan-esque song of his own. . . I thought it would be LOL funny, but it's actually a pretty decent knock-off--sounds amazingly like Dylan.  I wonder if Dylan's will be as . . . Dylan-ish!

Have a listen here--this is the "short" version.
