Forgot My Password: Caption Contest Winners Announced

Sticky notes, clouds and authentication jokes. And the winning caption is...

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.

Congrats!
Aw.  Well, it's just as well.  "My" best one wasn't really mine; it was a suggestion by my girlfriend.  ( darkreading.com/messages.asp?piddl_msgthreadid=26476&piddl_msgid=316999#msg_316999 )C

Congratulations to the winners!  Excellent grand prize choice!
