(This was a post from 2009 but I wanted to start out this day with a chuckle.)
I am not a fan of word verification. I don't use it. Of course one day when I am big and famous then I may have to reconsider but until then you have clear sailing when it is time to comment.
My question is where on earth do these snippets come from? What do they mean? Nothing I know but what if they did.
Here are some of the recent ones I have had to type in. What would your definition of these "words" be?
- tacrocra - a South American vegetable similar to okra
- puticar - a car for Lilliputians
- ingoeste - an ancient word for eating as in "ingoeste thy food"
- sothe - how you feel after you ingoested your food
- deopun - a joke about your deo
- tateduc - a new brand of duct tape
- pockall - an acne medication
- bioner - a pioneer in a biosphere
- fogisci - an Italian fog
- zyman - the way German people say hymen
- murbeke - the hillbilly cousin of William Moerbeke, Flemish translator, which is who we need to get a hold of to translate what all these crazy word verifications mean.
