Friday Funny: New Year in the Data Center
December 21st, 2012 By: Colleen Miller
It’s Friday! We’ve made it to the end of the week. And that means it’s time for our Friday caption contest, with cartoons drawn by Diane Alber, our fav data center cartoonist! Please visit Diane’s website Kip and Gary for more of her data center humor.
This time, we are featuring “Happy New Year in the DC.” Diane writes: “The new year is coming up, so I thought Kip and Gary would celebrate it in the data center.”
The caption contest works like this: We provide the cartoon and you, our readers, submit the captions. We then choose finalists and the readers vote for their favorite funniest suggestion. Scroll down and add your suggestion in the comments below.
Also, congrats go out to Jason Woodrum for the winning caption — “I would strongly advise you stay out of the hot aisles this year, Frosty.” — for “Snowman Surprise.”
CSC offers Diane’s 2013 Kip and Gary Data Center Comic Calendar for free. You can pre-order one through Diane’s site.
May you have a great holiday season and a New Year filled with laughter! And for the previous cartoons on DCK, see our Humor Channel.

I wonder what will go off first the pre-action system or the fire suppression?

ASHRAE doesn’t say anything about fireworks…
