Drip, drip, drip

Jenny: I got a letter through the door saying there is a burst water main at the end of my road and none of my taps would work. I read the note and instantly started giving birth.

Sheila: Why was that?

Jenny: My waters broke.

I like this one because it's funny, but also because it has a 'if a tree falls in a forest and there's nobody there to hear it, does it make a sound?' quality. To wit, did she start giving birth because her waters broke or because she was suddenly aware that her waters had broken? Ah, this life is beautiful and mysterious...
