captchas 3/24


Every time I have use word verification to leave blog comments, I scribble down the nonsense word on a post-it because some of the words sound like they could almost be real. The program for this spam preventative is called "Captcha" (I love that word too). After I gathered enough of them I tried to turn them into little illustrations with a somewhat technical styling. If any of these are real words, please don't tell me!

it's fun to play a game with the word verification words- you can make up definitions or use them in a sentence based on their phonetic pronunciation.

i like them when they seem to relate to the entry, the comment, &/or the author {of either the blog or the comment}. hedogren is my word for this comment, and today, i'm sure that i will find plenty of uses for it. it'd be extra awesome if i can slip it into conversation, doncha think? grins, debra

LOL! This is great and very creative! Every once in a while I'll notice that the letters spell a real word backwards. I hope that doesn't mean blogging is just a trick - like playing old Led Zepplin records backwards, yikes! LOL :-)

Exposure to noumsms at a young age have shown to cause thormisms. I heard that on Coast 2 Coast.

Lex & I love the glings and boxedics! Very cool. He wants me to save up a bunch for him to draw. I guess I'll have to start leaving a lot of comments :)

I'm also fascinated by these words. I once speculated that maybe aliens are trying to send us secret messages. Hey, it could happen.

This one's "brele;" another couple, "hersuft," and "sinkst." I also remember "minte" and "kylingus." Kylingus? REally?!!!
