Friday Funny: Kip and Gary Visit Data Center World

It’s Friday! We are crossing the finish line on another work week. And at Data Center Knowledge, it means we publish our cartoon contest.

Diane Alber, our data center cartoonist, writes, “I’m sure you have been to a trade show sometime in your career, so I thought it would be a good opportunity for Kip and Gary to go to one too! Who will be at the Data Center World Exhibit Hall to greet their friends Kip and Gary? Why the Data Center Knowledge team, of course. ” You can visit Diane’s website Kip and Gary for more of her data center humor.

Submit your caption suggestions for the cartoon below.

Also, big congratulations to our reader, who submitted, “Just 5 or 6 more cords and we can reach the neighbor’s building.” for our cartoon, Extending More Power.

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!
