Some people take themselves far too seriously. Others, not enough. But occasionally on Answers I find a unique combination of a tongue-in-cheek question followed by a sober, thoughtful response, and it never fails to make me smile.
In one case, Answers user Sir Marmalade Beauville-Lobe IV (a serious name if ever there was one) asks, “How much would it cost to install a tank of sharks underneath a meeting room?“
The straightforward tone of this “utterly ludicrous question” prompted a number of earnest replies. Then again, maybe some Answerers have experience in such matters. This community is, after all, exceptionally large and diverse.
Of all the responses, Gruntled Employee’s helpful reply definitely deserves its Best Answer rating. Without so much as batting a virtual eye, he provides a breakdown of the cost of building the tank, as well as the ongoing expense of maintaining the sharks. (Now that I have this information, I want to build one of my own. Seriously.)
