It probably goes without saying that, as always, wading through the humongous number of entries for the November cartoon caption competition was no easy task, but -- with only a little prodding and poking and whining and moaning -- the EE Times Elves have finally come to a consensus.
The winning entry, by EE Times Community Member trstrope, was "It was a seamless transition from Senior Principal Engineer to Museum Curator."
It was a seamless transition from Senior Principal Engineer to Museum Curator.
And the runners up -- in no particular order (the EE Times Elves aren't very good at "order")-- were as follows:
rxx12345:"What happens in the test lab stays in the test lab."
antedeluvian:"Rory comes up with another use for his sporran."
dt_hayden:"The RF Lab only employed eunuchs in the cleaning crew in order to keep spurious emissions to a minimum."
Howman:"Though hapless Harry is now blissfully cleaning up his ACT (Antique Cluster of Technology), he will soon find out what the cleanroom manager does with his contraband feather duster."
2Torr:"Eager to open his eye diagrams, Keith waved his magic dust wand, removing a mantle of crust that had enveloped the ancient test equipment. 'Aye, I was blind, but now I see the lights!'"
Right up until he was shown the apron for his first assignment, Edgar was rather pleased with his light-hearted quip that he'd sweep floors to get into this place; it certainly appeared to be very well received by the interviewing manager.
