Friday Funny: Raised Floor Adventures

It’s Friday and time for a few laughs. Towards that end, we run our caption contest on Fridays, 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.

First, we must announce the winner of the “Pot of Gold” cartoon: Congrats to Colton Brown of Dupont Fabros who submitted, “Don’t worry, Gary! He’s our new private equity investor!”

This week we present “Raised Floor Adventures.” Diane writes, “I’ve heard that people have found all sorts of weird things under the raised floor. . .” Enter your caption suggestion below.

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.

The winner will receive his or her caption in a signed print by Diane.



For the previous cartoons on DCK, see our Humor Channel.

    I thought server sprawl was bad!

  2. Mark Garcia

    "I guess it's not because of zinc whiskers, eh..."

  3. Jason Woodrum

    Wow! These dust bunnies are really multiplying.

  4. Are you aware of the fact we both walked in here with our coffee?

  5. Phil Kaman

    "No way am I checking these bunnies for Zinc whiskers"

  6. "I told you that rabbits won't work as a UPS"

  7. Jason Rafkind

    So these are the bunnies that place the Easter Eggs in our code.

  8. James George

    I knew you said it was going to be 'hairy' under the floor, just not that 'harey;!

  9. Gordon White

    So, when I told you we had a replication problem in the data center...

  10. Jaroslav Kapetan

    When I said to secretary : "Get me some verified jumpers!" I meant for the motherboard troubleshooting...

  11. dday

    Kip, a raised floor doesn't mean you can raise bunnies

  12. Unexpected side-effect of the new Multi system. This wasn't apparent in testing!

  13. When that consultant told us we had a rabbit warren under the raised floor, I thought it was a metaphor.

  14. Craig Norris

    Dammit Kip, I asked for more redundancy, not reBUNdancy!

  15. Brian

    I told you hiring a pair of rabbits to clean under there was a bad idea.

  16. Ryan Fogleman

    God I hope there an app for that !

  17. Ric

    "I have never seen them multiply so fast. Must be something in the chilled water!"

  18. Is this another one of your 'hare' brained ideas to increase profitability?

  19. Looks like we're heading down another rabbit hole.

  20. Dan Lind

    Well, I guess it's better than the 'rat's nest' you told me to expect under there!

  21. Michael Gray

    Kip, you forgot to tie the pull cords to their tails.

  22. Jeff Wombold

    Hmmm... computer bugs seems to be taking on a whole new meaning!

  23. 1) Should we replace that tile with a hare vent? 2) See, I told you if we poured boiling water down the hole we'd get hot cross bunnies

  24. Gregg Haley

    This may be why there are so many hops in the Network.

  25. Sean Whalen

    I guess that rabbit consolidation project isn't showing those TCO savings quite yet...

  26. David Drysdale

    I don't think we're getting those deduplication ratios we were promised at ALL.
