“How do you think the unthinkable?"/"With an itheberg.”

A lisp riddle has been printed on many images (often with a photo of boxer Mike Tyson) :

Q: How do you think the unthinkable?
A: With an itheberg.


The “How do you sink the unsinkable? With an iceberg” is a joke on the RMS Titanic, a ship that hit an iceberg and sank on April 15, 1012. The joke was first posted on Twitter on August 31, 2014.


Wikipedia: RMS Titanic
RMS Titanic (/taɪˈtænɪk/) was a British passenger liner that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean in the early morning hours of 15 April 1912, after it collided with an iceberg during its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City. There were an estimated 2,224 passengers and crew aboard the ship, and more than 1,500 died, making it one of the deadliest commercial peacetime maritime disasters in modern history. The RMS Titanic was the largest ship afloat at the time it entered service and was the second of three Olympic-class ocean liners operated by the White Star Line.

How do you think the unthinkable? Ithburgth.

This joke is really horrible. For this joke to be funny, the listener has to first realize that the jokester is attempting to mimic a lisp (a speech impediment where they can’t say an ‘s’ sound), and then they have to remember that the Titanic (the ship, not the movie), was supposed to be unsinkable, but it was sunk by an iceberg.
