Friday Funny: Snowman Surprise

It’s Friday! We have made it through the week and it’s time to celebrate with a little humor. Here’s a new cartoon from data center artist Diane Alber.

She writes, “The holiday season is upon us and I thought it was only fitting to try and incorporate that in a comic. . .”

And here it is! Enter your caption suggestions below.

How The Contest Works

Here’s how it works: We provide the cartoon (drawn by Diane) 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.
