Friday Funny: An Eye-Catching Fourth of July

It’s Friday and time for a few laughs before the Independence Day holiday in the United States. We run our caption contest on Fridays, with cartoons drawn by Diane Alber, our favorite data center cartoonist! Please visit Diane’s website Kip and Gary for more of her data center humor.

This week we present “An Eye-Catching Fourth of July.” Diane writes, I’m seeing a lot of themed colored data centers so why not one celebrating the 4th of July!” 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.

    You'd never know these servers weren't built in the US by looking at them would you

  4. That's where we store the NSA data.

  5. Looks great, let's just hope there's no fireworks display.

    I still don't understand how striping the disk arrays improves performance.

  7. Only the Ecuadoreans complain.

  8. Say goodbye to plain black racks! Now we can test the light levels in the data center for reflectivity of multiple rack colors!

    This is where we put the government cloud. The flag keeps the wrong people from accessing the servers.

    Looks like we had our own NSA whistle blower

  11. Chinese data center tour: So this is where all the leaked US intel is stored.
