I am the keeper of the fish tank at work and have run into trouble for not changing the theme to keep up with the politically correct times. The present, albeit out of date, global warming scenery consists of New York City landmarks submerged in the water. The Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty are in there along with clean coal power plants, SUV's, pick up trucks, and a Rudy Guiliani action figure strewn on the bottom. It looks pretty convincing with the fish swimming around and above New York. (On top of the water line and out of view I contructed a small beach scene with a rotund Al Gore doll beached helplessly on it.)

Since Obama has become President I have been ordered to change the aquarium's environment. Beside the happy fish, I will add happy snail darters, polar bears, baby fur seals, and beautiful mermaids among the unpolluted, happy crystal clear waters. They will all be frolicking around the Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh voodoo dolls on the bottom. (Since it is so hard to see, the little beach and Al Gore stay.)
