Friday Funny: Cartoon Caption Contest

It’s Friday, so it’s time for our Friday Funny Caption Contest here on Data Center Knowledge! We ask our readers to provide the caption for this week's "hot" cartoon.

It’s Friday, so it’s time for our Friday Funny Caption Contest here at Data Center Knowledge!

Our winner for last week’s caption contest was Scott S, who sent in: "What do you think the acronym “LIQUID” means? We better get some coffee and think about this." This was voted the best caption for the cartoon drawn by Diane Alber, our resident data center cartoonist.

Thanks for all the submissions and to all our readers who voted on the final choices. This week, we are asking for submissions on a new cartoon below.

Background from Diane: "I got this idea from walking by one of those racks that's packed with servers and realizing how hot those things really get. I figured it's only going to get hotter because everyone is going to want to do more and more and store more and more. I think you can see where I was going with this comic."

Here's how it works: We provide the cartoon, drawn by Diane, and you, the reader, submit captions. We will then choose three finalists and you will have a chance to vote on your favorite. The winner will receive their caption in a signed print by Diane!
