It's Friday, in the summer! What could be better? How about a little data center humor to top it off!

Our winner for last week’s caption contest was Brian L., who sent in: “Big Data was more than we had planned for.” This was voted the best caption for the raised floor cartoon drawn by Diane Alber, our resident data center cartoonist.

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

Diane writes about this week's cartoon: "One of my customers thought of this idea and I thought it was brilliant! I’m sure you worked or toured a data center where all the cable on the floor was preventing airflow causing a cable dam. So it’s only natural to have a dam building expert help solve the problem?"

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!
