What the %@*#?! Wednesday, CAPTCHA

It has been too long since I posted a What the %@*#?! Wednesday story, and today, since I'm already giving away sex toys, I figured I might as well jump into the adult content with both feet. Here goes:

Over the past few months, I've observed a disturbing trend in CAPTCHA, the word verification system Blogger uses to ensure that the people leaving you comments are normal humans and not computer-generated spammers. Take this gem for instance:


Now, I know it's not an exact spelling of the feminine hygiene product or that name my husband loves to call people who drive slow in the fast lane (d-bag), but still, it's a questionable choice for word verification, dontcha think?

And what about this one? Again, I know it's "misspelled" but still - What the %@*#?!



Then there's this doozy, my favorite of this trifecta - an actual curse word spelled correctly, and worst of all, presented when I was leaving a comment on a mommy blog that focuses on Christ and makes a point of abstaining from questionable, offensive or adult content. Say it with me now - What the %@*#?!


Call me juvenile, but I laugh out loud everytime I get a CAPTCHA word that's the least bit dirty. I feel like Beavis or Butthead cracking myself up over a dirty word. Heh, heh. She said crack. Heh, heh.

Do you pay attention to your CAPTCHA words? Do they ever make you laugh? Recently, when reading comments over at Cake Wrecks, I noticed people copying their CAPTCHA words into their comments and creating their own definitions for them. Things like:

WV*: Halis. As in, “What the halis wrong with these cakes?”

or

WV: Unsoc, as in, “Excuse me while I unsoc my feet.”

Hilarious right? In fact, it's so amusing to me that I'm turning word verification back on for a few days so we can all play along. I encourage (beg) you to use your CAPTCHA word in a sentence at the end of any comments you leave on my blog this week. There might just be a prize involved for one or two lucky commenters!

WV = word verification

Over at Stuff Christians Like, the wv (word verification) game has been going on for a while. It took me a little while to "get" what folks were doing in their comments, but now I read most of them just to laugh at their wv definitions. I'll use mine for this comment as an example:

wv-catel definition--a hotel for cats.

Elaine at Matters of the Heart) said...

This cracked me up. Thanks for the good laugh tonight.

I promise I wont be dismsive, no lie dismsive, was my WV. Spelled close enough for me.

I've wondered this too! And it seems like it comes up alot more now than the other words.

Jingle said...

I'm with you! LOL! They crack me up. Of course, you are aware that the word 'prick' could just as easily refer to pricking ones finger on a thorn or some such innocent context, right? LOL! That's okay...I would have gone there, too! HA!

Kameron said...

catulnes ~ Unlike frog legs, fish eggs and mountain oysters, cattle knees just haven't caught on as a delicacy.

Karen Marcus said...

"Untals"--- as in my kids have 3 untals (uncles)... Untal Mark, Untal Brian, and Untal Adam:-)

You can rate the cartoonist's day by the size of his artheep.

Chris said...

HA! That is funny! I have missed What the %@*#?!

I always pay attention to the CAPTCHA words, and yes, I always snicker and giggle when it's a naughty sounding word!



This time it's REAVEN -- that's a raven with a superiority complex.

Kimm at Reinvented said...

Okay, so I laugh when the word is naughty too! But this time I got "soles", as in, the "soles" of my feet need some serious exfoliation. :)

Libby said...

Those are so funny! I was cracking up as I read them! I have noticed some crazy ones too!

Leigh said...

Hilarious post!

briallys - "Mom, I was trying to pick the berries but all the briallys were getting me." Sounds like something my six year old would tell me.

Roxane said...
