Pour water into a small bowl and cover one plate with paper towels.  Place the shrimp, water chestnuts, and celery in a food processor and process until smooth.  Place 1 teaspoon of mixture in the center of a won ton wrapper.  Wet two edges before folding on the diagonal and press to seal.  Place uncooked won tons on a plate.  You can cover the plate with plastic wrap if the won tons begin to dry out.  Continue until all of the mixture and wrappers are used.  Heat oil in a heavy deep skillet and fry the won tons, turning once during cooking.  Drain on a paper towel covered plate, then transfer to the serving platter and keep warm while the other won tons are being cooked.  Serve with dipping sauces.
