From sticky notes to clouds and authentication puns, the Dark Reading cartoon caption contest brought out the humorists in our community with some hysterical word-play tinged with geek. More than 100 of you submitted entries -- and many hundreds more laughed and cheered the contestants on.
And so it is with great pleasure that I announce the winner: Dark Reading community member jeberha3 for the hysterical submission pictured below:
Jeberha3 takes home a $25 Starbucks gift card, and will receive a signed copy of the cartoon by John Klossner, who helped judge the contest along with the Dark Reading editorial team: Tim Wilson, Kelly Jackson Higgins, Sara Peters and yours truly.
Honorable mention (and a $10 Starbucks card) go to Tom Robey (aka TomR518) a network security engineer at Computer Enhancement Systems for the clever “If you used two-factor authentication, I can't wait to see what's coming next,” and Chris Page (nipsy’s) witty "Is the six upper or lower case?" – a question he says he's been asked more than a few times in real life.
Thanks again to everyone who entered the contest. If you haven’t yet read all the captions, be sure to check them out today.
