Friday Funny: A Cable Conundrum Cartoon
March 16th, 2012 By: Colleen Miller
It’s Friday and time for a bit of workplace humor. Diane Alber, the Arizona artist who created Kip and Gary, has a new cartoon for Data Center Knowledge’s cartoon caption contest. We challenge our readers to submit a funny caption that fits the comedic situation. Please add your entry in the comments below. Then, next week, our readers will vote for the best submission.
Last week, the entry from Erick Jensen – “Should we tell him that at the end of this rainbow is only a pot of Bitcoins?” – was deemed the best. Great pop culture reference, Erik! Congratulations! We will contact you and make sure you get a signed print of the cartoon from the artist.
Here’s Diane’s thoughts on this week’s cartoon, “I’ve seen some pretty horrific cabling closets and I just couldn’t imagine having to do a patch. That was what inspired this next comic.”

i would propose the following caption
“Is _this_ yours? or the other?”

“It was pretty dark in there, Kip. I didn’t think I was going to make it out alive.”
At least I can still drink my coffee… Oh no! The cables are restricting my arm movement! Kip, help!
“I think I have the one you need. It’s right… here… no… here… no, that’s not it. Oh shoot.”
My entry: “I’ve become the Pig Pen of the data center!”

Kip, do you think this outfit can one-up Lady Gaga?
Kip, I found out where all the extra wire on that Purchase Order went. Turns out that the network team was going to the office costume party as a data closet and got a bit carried away!

The CEO’s desktop is back online; however, the rest of the network is down.

(Kip) “You still troubleshooting?”
(Gary)”We traced the bad cable down to one of these…”
(Kip) “You seem to have things well in hand”
(Gary) “Should have the network back on-line once we figure out where the wire run diagrams and cable and port labels are.”
(Kip) “ohhh noooo”

“… so I went in the closet and there was a lady dressed in black latex… she said I had been a naughty technician… “
