Friday Funny: Data Center Thanksgiving

Dear Data Center Knowledge readers and fans of data center humor, please note that we will be switching from a weekly publishing schedule of Kip and Gary Friday Funnies to a monthly one. From now on, the Friday Funny will appear on the first Friday of every month. Here’s this month’s edition:

Thanksgiving comes to Kip and Gary’s data center early!

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 Darrell, whose caption won the “Hole in the Wall” edition of the contest. His caption was: “The wall was between me and the coffee machine.”
Some good submissions came in for the Halloween 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!

    A number of the customers were complaining that their data was coming back as gobble-gobble!

    "Here's the Turkey in the datacenter floor you asked for... Oh, you wanted some datacenter floor in Turkey?"

  7. Damm you Kip! The IBM 1.5 Steamer instructions clearly state: The Turkey needs to be plucked before placing it in the steamer compartment. Does that looked Plucked to you??

    This explains what's been "gobbling" up all the power.
