Friday Funny: Warning Signs

Thank Goodness It’s Friday! It’s been a long week around here at DCK, and we are looking forward to the weekend. But first, it’s time for some humor!

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, “Do you ever really look at warning signs in the Data center? Usually there is a lot them but people seem to just glaze over when they read them. Maybe we should be reading them more carefully!”

Congrats to the last cartoon winner, Jim Leach from Raging Wire, who submitted, “He’s our new disaster recovery consultant.”
