Friday Funny: Pumpkin Cage

In the spirit of Halloween!

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 Stanley, whose caption won the “Server Pileup” edition of the contest. His caption was: “The rack team is at a conference but the stack team is still working.”

Some good submissions came in for the “Hole in the Wall” 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!

  1. "They'll make it to Halloween this year. The environmental controls and security in here extend the end of life for my pumpkins by a whole week!"

  2. Do you have any idea how many pies we can make with these?? And no one else will be able to get their hands on them!

  3. Michael Gray

    I said I wanted you to get some Raspberry Pi's. Not Pumpkin pies.

    We were going for our LEED building certification and wanted to use biodegradable fiber trough!

  5. Veridian Dynamics had some great slightly used pumpkins on sale!

  6. Just wanted to make sure we have enough for our Pumpking Spice Lattes through the whole year!

    Apparently I need to specify when I said we needed to "patch" somethings...a pumpkin patch wasn't exactly what I had in mind

  8. Dave S

    The latest pie charts show terra-bite consumption heating up this Fall, so I added cold aisle containment to our storage system.

  9. Stanley Cupman

    Yes, they're a direct competitor of Apple.

  10. David Hedding

    This wasn't what I had anticipated when I said "Let's corral this latest patch prior to Halloween."

  11. Tim Hufnagel

    "What are you out of your gourd?"

  12. Philip Sheets

    So... this is what happens when you run Farmville on the mainframe.
