As a match maker, Miki has serious limitations but at least her heart is in the right place.  :-D

I'm trying to work out if that would be a large pool type tank with sharks in them.. or a tracked vehicle in the shape of a certain fish.

On second thoughts, there's also the option of "both, at once"?

You mean like my avatar? It's really more of a "fish tank" but I think it'd scale up to accommodate a shark easily enough.

There are quite enough Large Ill-Tempered Fish out there, thank you -- we do not need any more.

Ill-tempered fish are bad enough but ill-tempered cephalopods (Humbolt squid!) are worse.  When I used to dive in SoCal/Baja we kept an eye out for sharks but if the big squid showed up we went somewhere else!

How about a tracked, armored vehicle with an enclosed, water-filled cockpit operated by a wealthy, hyper-intelligent shark who looks for worthy entrepreneurs to fund, a la the TV show "Shark Tank"?

Or possibly a new weapon for the U.S. Marines entitled the Tank Shark?

A special jail cell for inebriated sharks?
