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

Friday Funny Caption Contest: 300 Pound Gorilla

Although it’s somewhat hard to believe, the weekend is upon us again. Let’s have a little fun this Friday afternoon with a brand new Kip and Gary!

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, “Kip and Gary knew their next colo tenant was going to be a gorilla, I’m just not sure they were expecting this!”

Congratulations to the last cartoon winner, Jon, who won with, “If I can’t work at Google, at least I can make this place look like Google!”
