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

Friday Funny Caption Contest: Chicken Coop

We have a two-day vacation upon us again and we’re in a celebratory mood. Let’s kick this summer weekend off right with a brand new 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 you 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, “I’m sure you’ve heard of the chicken coop data center?! Kip and Gary wanted to try the design out in their new white space!”

Congratulations to the last cartoon winner, Don, who won with, “Norton virus removal team seems to mean business …”

    I'm just not sure how Yahoo keeps all these chickens from getting out??

  3. I see your Faraday cage security project came in under budget.

  4. Sammy L

    Well, well, this is not exactly what I thought when I said, "I want something like Yahoo's data center" .. !!!!!!!!

  5. Jim Daly

    I see we have to many eggs in one cage!

  6. Peter Maz

    Is this what they mean by containment?

  7. Ed G

    We never thought about the noise and smell when we decided to move the farm into the cloud!

    Clean up, (cold) aisle 1 !

  9. Revision! :) So funny! :) We actually manufacture/sell application-based security caging in 16 gauge steel painted with a powder coat polyester paint (non-"chicken-wire"). :) "So, Kip.... I see you saved a couple of buck, buck, buuuuuucks - and got some free range...I mean...free cage... accessories!"

  10. And I thought herding cats in the executive suite was hard...

  13. Darren Rohlwing

    this kind of redefines a layer 1 issue.

  14. When the farmers said they were colocating their most important equipment with us, this isn't what I had in mind!

  15. Ken H

    So is the data center now providing biofuels or lunch?

  16. Of Course we're PCI Compliant!!! We even provide a full cage for your assets!

    Time to finally get that certification in "Animal Husbandry". Only question is, should I list it above or below CCIE in my signature?

  18. Tim Collins

    If he only knew that what they leave behind is what we base most of our policies on!

  19. Tim Collins

    I thought we weren't suppose to keep all our eggs in one basket?

    "We probably should have noted the MAC addresses when the cartons arrived"

    The sales team misunderstood when we asked them to get Chick-fil-a's hosting business!
