Friday Funny: The Wiring Fairies

It’s Friday and time for a little levity at Data Center Knowledge before we head off for the weekend. We invite all our readers to submit captions for the new cartoon, called "Wiring Fairies."

It’s Friday and time for a little levity at Data Center Knowledge before we head off for the weekend. We invite all our readers to submit captions that best fits the cartoon below.

For our previous cartoon - the Data Center Bubble, the winner is Sarah Pollock, who submitted, " What you see here is called the Hubba Bubba package, but we also sell the Double Bubble package and the Bubblesphere packages for our large customers like yourselves." Congratulations, Sarah!

Diane Alber, our data center cartoonist, explains how she came up with this week's cartoon, "I got this idea while talking to a mechanical/electrical engineer that referred to the infrastructure wiring as 'fairy wiring.' It made me laugh so I thought I would take on my own interpretation of the phrase 'fairy wiring.' This goes back to one of my blog posts where I had to explain what I do for a living, everyone knows what electrical wire is and they understand without it a light bulb wouldn’t work, but for some reason with all the wireless we have going on I think a lot of people think the Internet just 'magically appears' if you stuck with that theme it would make sense that the wiring would be done by fairies. . .So I just had to do a comic about it!"

The Data Center Knowledge caption contest works like this: We provide the cartoon (drawn by Diane Alber, whose website is KipandGary.com) and you, our readers, submit the captions. We then choose finalists and the readers vote for their favorite funniest suggestion. The winner will receive their caption in a signed print by Diane.
