Friday Funny: Cartoon Caption Contest
November 18th, 2011 By: Colleen Miller
It’s Friday, so it’s time for our Friday Funny Caption Contest here at Data Center Knowledge!
Our winner for last week’s caption contest was Scott S, who sent in: “What do you think the acronym “LIQUID” means? We better get some coffee and think about this.” This was voted the best caption for the cartoon drawn by Diane Alber, our resident data center cartoonist.
Thanks for all the submissions and to all our readers who voted on the final choices. This week, we are asking for submissions on a new cartoon below.
Background from Diane: “I got this idea from walking by one of those racks that’s packed with servers and realizing how hot those things really get. I figured it’s only going to get hotter because everyone is going to want to do more and more and store more and more. I think you can see where I was going with this comic.”
Here’s how it works: We provide the cartoon, drawn by Diane, and you, the reader, submit captions. We will then choose three finalists and you will have a chance to vote on your favorite. The winner will receive their caption in a signed print by Diane!

Good thing we are always carrying these cups/ fire extinguisher’s.
Now why were afterburners a good idea for the new servers.

“Where are the marshmellows?”
“I know you sugested increesing the hot isle temperature to reduce costs, but this might be a little too far…”

I think we’ll rename row 17 to “Hades”.
“I love that unique taste that FM200 adds to my coffee”
“Smells just like… Fisher Plaza on the Fourth of July!”
“I told the boss that blade servers were a dumb idea, but does he listen to me?”
“Kip, fetch the marshmallows. This is going to be a long night… we may as well make the best of it.”
“When the VP promised us ‘hot new servers’ this is NOT what I had in mind.”

“Now, which one is the hot isle? I always forget.”
Jeff CrawfordPosted November 18th, 2011
I transferred from the Forestry Service, so I know just how to handle this. I say we take down the racks around it, wet down the others and let this baby burn itself out.
The best. I wish that would have happened at a few of the server companies i have used in the past. lol
