It’s time for another edition of Crystal’s New American Captcha dictionary.
For those who are uninitiated…Captcha is the term used to describe the nonsensical words you must type before you are able to comment on blogs or even visit some sites. In case you are wondering about my title let me enlighten you. The title is my nod to the good old Elmer Fudd cartoons. Elmer wanted to say “Dang rabbit,” (or even worse) and he avoided profanity by transposing the letters. While typing captcha, some of us may need to avoid profanity, especially when we type it incorrectly. Good old Elmer may have been the true inventor of captcha.
What follows are some real captcha words that I have received in recent days…. enjoy:
