Friday Funny: Into Every Life, A Little Rain Must Fall

It’s Friday and time for a little data center humor! Before you head out for the weekend, add your suggestions for the data center cartoon caption contest below.

This time, our data center gurus, Kip and Gary, are facing a little indoor water feature in the data hall.

For those of you who don’t know, here’s how it works: We provide the cartoon (drawn by Diane Alber, our awesome data center cartoonist) 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.

Please visit Diane’s website Kip and Gary for more of her data center cartoon humor.
