Friday Funny: Caption Contest – Secure Servers

We’ve reached the end of the week and are looking forward to the best Happy Hour of the week 5 p.m. on Friday! But before we hit the door, it’s time for a bit of workplace humor.

Congratulations to Loren Shields of National Net, who won the previous cartoon contest, suggesting a caption for our “Tall Cabinet” cartoon with “”Oh great, now the other servers will have cabinet envy.” Thanks to all for all the great entries. The data center crowd is funny AND smart!

Below is another cartoon for our caption contest where we provide the cartoon by Diane Alber, our data center cartoonist who draws Kip and Gary, and you, our readers, can submit the caption. We will then choose three finalists and the readers will have a chance to vote for their favorite suggestion. The winner will receive their caption in a signed print by Diane.

About this week’s cartoon, Diane writes, “Data centers are constantly improving their security and when Kip was tasked to add additional security…this is what he came up with…” Please submit your caption below.
