Default Help needed - fill in the blanks competition

If you follow this link you will find a cartoon that is targeted at law maker aids etc.

http://www.bugbrowser.com/httpdownloads/cartoon_v13.gif

I am after suggestions for text to place two places:
A) Front of the storage tank
B) In the think bubble
Feel free to suggest only for one place.


For example:
A) "1,000,000 HIGH SKILLED PROBATIONARY IMMIGRANTS & DEPENDANTS"
B) "Another case of wrong size pipes!"

or

B) "Did a politician design this plumbing?"
maybe not a good idea to make fun of those we need help from though.

Also, full credit to Suren who has helped very significantly with this. Indeed I will likely need some more help from Suren - so thanks.

Default try to consider print size

try to consider print size. The text will need to fit within appropriate areas.
We will likely have some accompanying text for the cartoon that explains the problem, so the text for A and B just needs to make a brief point and be funny.

Default Here are my thoughts

A :- Innovation and Competitiveness engine
B :- Hmm .. I just need to release the valves immediately to stop losing highly skilled workers , innovation , capital and money to other countries. What an easy fix !!!


The Mechanic could be depicted as a US lawmaker . Maybe in a suit .


Accompanying text for cartoon :- Fix the US Innovation and Competitiveness engine before it runs out of steam .Fix legal high skilled immigration NOW .

Default Good Attempt

I think the cartoon is good attempt. My suggestion would be revise it little so that our message is more clear.

1. Have two pipelines coming out. One with an outlet in US, and the other with outlets in other parts of the world.

2. Have someone, representing US congress, inadvertently put their feet on the pipeline that has it's outlet in US. Make this pipeline appear clogged because of the weight of the feet.

Default drawing changes

I'm not a good enough artist to be able to make many drawing changes. While I've drawn most of this, it took me a long time. So I can fine tune the drawing a little. Mostly looking for a selection of witty words.

If Suren has time to make drawing improvements that's another matter, he's a much better artist than I (he did the plumber and gauges).

Default My suggestions

The cartoon looks good, I would prefer a congressman/senator (some one in a suit) trying to analyze the system rather than bob-the-builder.

My suggestions:

a> High skilled immigrants helping US competitiveness
b> With so many valves (constraints), are we not hurting ourselves?

The caption explaining the cartoon needs to include the fact that giving GCs to high skilled immigrants helps keep US economy running smoothly and fuels its growth.
