The Silver Lining
The Titanic is sinking and Louis and his wife Naomi find themselves in the same life raft. Unfortunately, the raft was damaged during the panic, and it is slowly sinking. To make matters worse, the water around them is ice cold; there are sharks; they have no food or drink; nor is there any kind of weapon or emergency flare on board.
After a few minutes of silence, Louis turns to his wife and says, "I suppose we shouldn't be too ungrateful, Naomi. Things could have been much worse."
"What on earth do you mean - things could have been much worse?" replies Naomi, "Are you meshugga or something? How could it be any worse?"
"Well," replies Louis, "we could have paid full price for return tickets!"
