Technology/computing-based pun: it took nearly 3 hours for the Titanic to sink on April 14th 1912 so the pun can be used when files take longer than expected to sync.

Sync is the homophone of sink.

Sync being the abbreviation for synchronization or the process of keeping dataset copies consistant between one another in a computer system/network.

Sink meaning for something to go below the surface of water.
Jacob: Wow it's taking 3 hours for my files to sync with the network when it should have only taken 1 hour!
Jillian: Well you can say it's syncing slower than the titanic.
Jacob: Ah nice computer geek pun there!
