What's the best caption for our cartoon of the data center guys, Kip and Gary?

Friday Funny: Caught Up in Cables

Thank Goodness It’s Friday! That means there’s a weekend ahead, and there’s a Friday Funny. Time for some laughs.

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 just love spaghetti cabling comics and sometimes when I’ve toured a data center where cable is EVERYWHERE. I have often thought there could be someone trapped and no one would know!”

Congrats to the last cartoon winner, Michael Gray, who won with, “I had to start a BitCoin farm to support my coffee addiction.”

    If you two geniuses aren't too busy bringing liquid into the data center, could you hand me the RJ45 crimper? There's no way I'm letting go of this cable.
