I have been commenting more frequently on blogs due to Mofo and noticed I sometimes get a relevant or weird captcha phrase...
Once I got one that simply said "tastly" and I also got one that said "mandor"(scary man monster?).

I just got one that seemed to be insulting me (i have tattoos), It said "inkho". Haha! Anybody else see some silly ones?

This site makes comics around captchas. Some are pretty great.

Thanks for this comic! The link was on the old site and I've been wanting to return to it, but forgot where to go. It's so awesome!

My boyfriend signed up for facebook recently, and friended a bunch of people. When you mass-friend people, they make you do a captchas for each request, and we were laughing at how fitting some of the captchas were for the people's profiles.

I'm holding you personally responsible for what I have created, Vegimator.

I don't have much to add to the conversation, but one of the guys who invented captchas is one of my professors next semester (Luis von Ahn). And given what I heard when I heard him speak a few months ago*, he would probably think this is funny.

*Lots of wackiness involving getting spammers to transcribe multiple books
