Top 5 Data Center Cartoons of 2012

Tall Cabinet

This time of the year is the season for “Best of 2012” and “Top Stories” postings. We thought that our readers might enjoy a re-cap of  the antics of their favorite cartoon characters, Kip and Gary, and have a bit of a chuckle at the year’s best cartoons!

For those who are not familiar, Data Center Knowledge runs a “Friday Funny” cartoon, created by Diane Alber, and asks our readers to submit funny captions. You can see more of Diane’s work on

We have assembled the cartoons that folks submitted the most caption suggestions for this year. The number one winner was the “tall cabinets” cartoon above. Enjoy!
