The Telco Transformation community has spoken: elizabethv is the winner of last month's cartoon caption contest with a whopping three votes.
"Why bother? The thing will be outdated in 10,000 years anyway,"
From there, the voting process broke down (again) with seven entries tied with one vote apiece. The random second-place winner was DHagar while Joe Stanganelli managed to get on the podium for third-place.
Second-place "There goes the neighborhood — streets and development are just around the corner," DHagar
Third-place "Zugg hasn't switched to OTT yet? What a Neanderthal!" Joe Stanganelli
First-place will be sent a $100 Amazon gift card, second a $75 gift card and third a $50 gift card. Thanks for all of the creative entries.
