Friday Funny: What Do We Do with All These Servers?

What to do when you show up and you have a pile of servers at the front desk?

Here’s how it works: Diane Alber, the Arizona artist who created Kip and Gary, creates a cartoon, and we challenge our readers to submit the funniest, most clever caption they think will be a fit. Then we ask our readers to vote for the best submission and the winner receives a signed print of the cartoon.

Congratulations to Ben, whose caption won the “Blob” edition of the contest. Ben’s caption was: “Oh man, I knew we shouldn’t have signed that contract with Nickelodeon!”

Lots of submissions came in for the “Data Center Ceiling” edition – now all we need is a winner. Help us out by submitting your vote below!

For previous cartoons on DCK, see our Humor Channel. And for more of Diane’s work, visit Kip and Gary’s website!

    The rack team is at a conference but the stack team is still working.

  4. If we stack them high enough we might reach the cloud...
