Friday Funny: Herding Cats on the Raised Floor

And you thought zombie servers were your biggest problem…

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 St. Patrick’s Day edition of the contest. His caption was: “You may see this as lucky, but I see it as a humidity control issue.”

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

    I swear I called in a B-Line order, not a Feline order!

  2. I said get CAT6, not 6 Cats!

  3. "You said- fix the rat's nest with Cat...7"

  4. Well we fixed the zinc fuzz issue, now we have a fur issue!

    The CFO thought this would be cheaper than exterminator to get rid of the mice chewing our under-floor cables. Now we have fur balls in our filters too!

    I'll be at the project meeting as soon as I round up these cats. Got any cat-nip?

  7. Hard enough for us NERD's to get a date... Now were also going to be tagged as cat people also?
