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

Friday Funny: Computer Crash

The end of the work week has finally arrived and so too has our Friday Funny!

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 what Diane had to say about this week’s cartoon, “While designing the last comic my computer crashed about a dozen times so I thought I’d bring light to the situation by making a comic of exactly what I was going to do when my computer crashed!”

Congrats to the last cartoon winner, Jim Leach, who won with, “I am the Jackson Pollock of data center cabling technicians.”
