Oh Etsy, you’re so cute when you don’t make sense.

This was featured on Etsy’s front page as one of their loved items. Did it escape everyone’s attention that an anchor is designed to sink? That it’s a fundamental part of an anchor’s purpose? I guess a buoy wouldn’t look as cool but at least it would be logical.

The seller could even change the phrase to something like ‘I am anchored in any storm’ or ‘In the eye of the storm I stand immovable’ – but not this. This is like using a bird to symbolise how grounded you are, or a ball gag to reflect your conventional views about sex.
