Friday Funny: The Luck O’ The Data Center

It’s Friday and time for a bit o’ lucky 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, “Sometimes you need a little luck when your managing a data center…”

Hearty congrats to Mike from IO, who submitted last week’s winning caption, “I pictured virtual currency to be a bit less. . . Heavy.”

    Do you suppose he's looking for the virtual currency?

  5. I wonder what his PUE is?

    He says the Dublin site is the place for growth.

  7. Uh...Gary...shouldn't he have a four-leaf clover? That looks more like a significant-downtime-three-leaf to me.
