“I wanted still water."/"This is sparkling, yes, but it’s still water.”

"Still water” is a term that has had a few puns, such as this one, posted on Reddit—Dad Jokes on April 11, 2017:

“What do you get if you take the bubbles out of sparkling water? I don’t know, but it’s still water.”

A similar pun was posted on Reddit—Jokes on June 21, 2017:

“He asked for a bottle of still water. I handed him sparkling. He said ‘I asked for still water not sparkling.’ ‘Yeah - but it’s still water.’”
