Sometimes a phrase just gets stuck in your head and you have to take care of it before you can move on to something else. This cartoon was the result of just such a dilemma. I had run across the phrase \u201csales are tanking\u201d and I knew there was something there, but for whatever reason I just could not find the right idea to go with it. I tried: People in an office with a tank Fish in a fish tank People having a meeting inside of a tank Scuba divers in a fish tank A tank in a fish tank Tank McNamara in a tank in a fish tank (OK, I made that one up.) And then finally this cartoon where both I and the character basically admit it\u2019s a confusing situation presented itself and I could move on.
