Maybe a topper out of rkt: an oil rig with black fondant oil spurting out.

I love the idea of a rkt drill tower with black oil. I'm a geologist, so I am a total rock nerd. I recently did a cake that showed different rock layers with dino bones. You could do the same kind of "layered" look on the side of the cake, but put black oil deposits inbetween some of the layers. Maybe even put in the drilling pipe down to the oil!

Sounds like fun! Good luck.

I, too, like the idea of an oil rig. What about the retiree in shorts, floral print shirt, sandals, and sunglasses diving from the top of the rig into a swimming pool (or beach scene)

no oil spurting out.

after all it's a retirement.

unclear on one point -- is this a person that is retiring or is it the actual field of pumps that is being put out of action?

in any event a great caption could be:

too pooped to pump!
