'Tis the Season: Dark Reading Caption Contest Winners

Bricked devices, penetration tests, and virtual reality were among the themes submitted in our latest holiday caption competition. And the winners are ...

Charles E. Davis, Master Sergeant in the Pacific Air Forces Command of the United States Air Force (aka chip1805 on Dark Reading), took the top honors and a $25 Amazon gift card for his hysterical virtual reality-themed cartoon for Name That Toon: 'Tis the Season, penned below by cartoonist John Klossner.

Second prize — a $10 Amazon gift card — goes to Brett Osborne (InfoSecurityMaster) for "FireWALL? I thought you said Pen Test the FirePLACE." When Brett is not entering cartoon caption contests, he works in security management in Florida. 

Many thanks to everyone who entered the contest with all their clever puns and observations, and to our loyal readers who cheered the contestants on. Also a shoutout to our judges, John Klossner and the Dark Reading editorial team: Tim Wilson, Kelly Jackson Higgins, Sara Peters, Kelly Sheriden, Dawn Kawamoto, and yours truly. If you haven't had a chance to read all the entries, be sure to check them out today.
