Friday Funny: Christmas in the Cold Aisle

Time to put up the lights!

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 Halloween edition of the contest. His caption was: “Yes, they’re a direct competitor of Apple.”

Some good submissions came in for the Thanksgiving edition – now all we need is a winner. Help us out by submitting your vote below!

  3. The RFP stated they needed the best lit data center on the east coast... so I went to Walmart and expensed these XMas lights.
