Friday Funny: Natural Cooling

It’s Friday and time for a bit of humor before the work week ends. Diane Alber, the Arizona artist who created Kip and Gary, has a new cartoon for Data Center Knowledge’s cartoon caption contest. We challenge our readers to submit a humorous and clever caption that fits the comedic situation. Please add your entry in the comments below. Then, next week, our readers will vote for the best submission.

Here’s Diane’s thoughts on this week’s cartoon, “I thought Kip and Gary might take ‘natural cooling’ to a new level . . . ”

Hearty congratulations to Colton Brown for submitting, “Catching the Fail Whale was so much easier!” for our Gobble, Gobble cartoon.

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!

  7. We had to ask Santa for the new cabinets because there was no room remaining on this year's budget. He must have left them out here because they would not fit down our rack-based chimneys.

  8. Rodney

    Is this really the production site for the movie " Frozen"?

  9. George Safford

    We also have a location in the "Rain Forrest" if you prefer water cooling over air cooling.
