What are some ocean jokes?

Q: What did the walrus say when he was late? A: "I would have been here sooner, but my iceberg hit a ship." Q: Why is the ocean blue? A: Because all the fish go blu, blu, blu. One day, a scuba diver was enjoying the aquatic world 30 feet underwater. He noticed a guy at the same depth he was, with no scuba gear on whatsoever. The diver went down to 60 feet, and noticed the guy headed down with him. The diver descended to 90 feet and saw the guy still headed down toward him. The diver finally stopped at 130 feet underwater and found the guy right next to him. The scuba diver was impressed that this guy was able to go so deep without any scuba gear, so he took his underwater slate and wrote, "How are you able to go to 130 feet underwater with any scuba equipment." When he showed to the him, the guy ripped the slate out of his hands and wrote, "I'm drowning you fool!" Q: How is a walrus like a banana? A: You'd better find out, because if you ever try to peel a walrus... Yo momma is so fat, when she jumped in the ocean the Whales started singing "We are family ..."
