Friday Funny: Pick a Caption for Smoking Rack

Kip and Gary see smoke emanating from a rack on their data center floor. What should the bubble say?

I can think of about a million reasons why your data center could start smoking… and I’m pretty sure this was 100 percent Kip’s fault!

Diane Alber, the Arizona artist who created Kip and Gary, has a new cartoon for Data Center Knowledge’s cartoon caption contest. What do you think would be the funniest text for the bubble? Post your caption in the comments. Then, next week, our readers will vote for the best submission.

Congratulations to Ben from Data Cave, whose caption for the “Data Center Treadmill” edition of Kip and Gary won the last contest. Ben won with: “When we talked about testing alternative forms of electricity, this isn't what I had in mind!”

Here’s the poll for the caption contest for last week’s “Beached Data Center” edition. Please vote!
