Friday Funny: How Remote Do You Go?

Congratulations! You’ve made it to Friday, which means it’s the end of the work week and time for the weekend — a brief respite from the daily grind. But before you take off, give us your ideas for a caption for our new Data Center Knowledge cartoon.

First, let’s congratulate reader DDayy2K for submitting “I was told you needed a wireless mouse” for the last cartoon, A Mouse in the Data Center.

For this week, Diane Alber, our favorite cartoonist, writes, “So there has been a huge trend the past couple of years of data centers being developed in the most remote locations, or “cow country”. . .only this time it looks like Kip and Gary have some unwanted guests!”

New to the caption contest? Here’s how it works: 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 receives a hard copy print, with his or her caption included in the cartoon!

For the previous cartoons on DCK, see our Humor Channel. Please visit Diane’s website Kip and Gary for more of her data center humor.
