Friday Caption Contest Meets The EPO Button

Time again for our Friday Funny Caption Contest. The comments are open, so add your creative suggestions for this week's cartoon, titled "EPO."

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 Tiernan O’Toole, who sent in: "“I know you suggested increasing the hot aisle temperature to reduce costs, but this might be a little too far…”This was voted the best caption by our readers for the cartoon drawn by Diane Alber, our resident data center cartoonist. For more of Diane's work, visit

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 always hear stories about the dreaded EPO switch. In older data centers they didn’t even have a cover around them. Some people thought it opened the door, others would run into by accident."

What do you think Kip is thinking?
