“I used to work in a diving school, but the company went under”

A company that’s bankrupt and closes is said to have “gone under” (as if buried). There are several diving company/school jokes.
 
“Friend’s had to cancel his deep sea diving holiday - company went under…” was posted on Twitter on January 17, 2011. “Got a load of Scuba stuff from a bloke who’s diving company went under” was posted on Twitter on April 9, 2017.
 
“I used to work in a diving school, but the company went under” was posted on Twitter by Joe Bor on January 7, 2012. “My scuba diving school has gone under. #Dailypun #1Pun” was posted on Twitter by Tog1989 on May 12, 2016.
   
“The first submarine sandwich shop opened in 1898, but the store went under” is a similar joke.
