Why is Nancy’s head on a silver platter?

At a recent sales meeting, the staff let Nancy know “in a very constructive way”that it was past time to post our new line Bruckmann yachts on the website.  She gave all of the usual excuses – busy with boat shows, etc.   It seemed to Nancy that the brokers had put her head on a silver platter. 

The next day, Nancy wrote to her brokers that she had made the additions to the website, and said “I hope I get my head back from the silver platter now.” 

At the next sales meeting, Scott Taylor and Bill Day surprised all of us by ceremoniously presenting Nancy her head back on a beautiful silver platter.
