Friday Funny: How Remote Do You Go?
August 23rd, 2013 By: Colleen Miller
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!
