Friday Funny: Are These Cabinets Too Tall?

You sure these are tall enough?

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. Submit your caption for the cartoon above in the comments.

Congratulations to Todd, whose caption won the Server Refresh edition of the contest. His caption was: “Ok, so ‘Simon Said’ hold 17 servers, stand on one leg and sing the ‘Big Bang Theory’ theme song. What should I have him do next?”

Some good submissions came in for last month’s St. Patrick’s Day edition – all we need now is a winner. Help us out by submitting your vote below!

It’s got to be a lucky data center!

    Do these racks come with a ladder? or I wonder what the temperature is way up there! or Do you really think the cold air coming out of these floor tiles will make it to the servers at the top?

  2. RE: Friday Funny: Are These Cabinets Too Tall? "Well, I see that IKEA has moved their gear in."

    I heard these new cabinets support Nexus 7718's for TOR distribution

  5. You can access the top half of the rack from the 2nd floor.

    So the National Basketball Association is our newest client, huh?

  7. I'm not sure. They're either our new high density cabinets or a rock climbing wall.

    Something tells me the fire marshal isn't going to like these racks.

    We are going to have to hire taller Data Center Engineers.
