Thursday Thirteen: Captchas Gone Wild

Thirteen Captchas Gone Wild

(Word Verification Challenge)


Get all 13 and win a prize!

Congratulations to Luin from Faerytale Dreams for winning the Captcha Contest!

We have all been there. We want to leave a comment but can't get past the stupid captcha! A captcha is basically a word verification to help prevent spam, a necessary evil. Anyway here are some captchas that stumped me. Can you guess them all?

1. What!?!








2. You are joking?






3.Huh?







4. If you say so...







5. Not if my life depended on it!







6.hmmmm.....







7. Sure, ok, ya, just give me a minute!






8. Almost got it!







9. Easy!












10. Good Luck!







11. A Freebie B)







12. uhh o toughy








13. ahh tricky, and a gimme













I know this is early, because I hate to be late.

Have a Great Thursday! Who Loves Ya?!?!

At Wed May 03, 11:09:00 PM PDT, Blogger Undercover Angel said...

LOL! That was just about the best TT I've seen ever! The funniest part - I actually tried to do the first one on the list... Am I ever an airhead...

My TT is up.

Oh those things are an absolute annoyance to do, especially those that are really, really hard to read. Oh, well . .. they do filter out the spam.

 
At Thu May 04, 12:07:00 AM PDT, Blogger mar said...

Great TT! Hate those things, keep thinking I need new glasses but then I hear everybody complaining about these codes!

 
At Thu May 04, 01:35:00 AM PDT, Anonymous Mandy said...

oh wow, some of those are impossible to read. I wonder why they do that. But, they are worth it at least.. it stops the spam.

 
At Thu May 04, 01:40:00 AM PDT, Blogger TLC said...

Those are hilarious. Of course, you have the captcha as well!

My 13 is up!

 
At Thu May 04, 02:00:00 AM PDT, Blogger Angie said...

That is so true! Great idea for a list!

 
At Thu May 04, 02:24:00 AM PDT, Blogger Libragirl said...

That was a great TT...I never get those right on the first try..especially the G and q...

 
At Thu May 04, 03:31:00 AM PDT, Blogger Chaotic Mom said...

I do NOT need any more frustration this morning, won't even try to win your contest. Great point you've made. COOL, funny list. ;)

 
At Thu May 04, 04:24:00 AM PDT, Blogger Blueyes said...

Arrgh, flashbacks...Those things are a pain in the butt lol

 
At Thu May 04, 04:32:00 AM PDT, Blogger Wystful1 said...

What a hoot!! Ya know?---I've caught myself trying to rearrange the letters to make words from them!! roflmao

My T T is published. Your 13 was very enjoyable....
and now for the test. Let's just see what I get with your word verification!! Aha! An easy one.

 
At Thu May 04, 04:33:00 AM PDT, Blogger Mary said...

I'm so not even going to attempt those horrible ones! haha

Great list!

Mine is up!

 
At Thu May 04, 04:45:00 AM PDT, Anonymous Dariana said...

OMG, this soooooooooo ROCKS. I hate those word verification things and even post it 13 reasons I hate them once, lol. This is GOOD! Happy TT! :-)

I hate spam too, so for all ya'll that put us through these things PLEASE get spam karma and you will have no more spam and I will not have to endure these things, tee hee hee. :-)

 
At Thu May 04, 04:53:00 AM PDT, Blogger Carmen said...

looks like the first one is smarmy. That's funny. I often have to enter them 2 or 3 times. hate them, but no spam.

 
At Thu May 04, 05:07:00 AM PDT, Blogger Jane said...

Those were AWFUL!!!!! It is so annoying when I have to redo it THREE times to get one right!!!
My thirteen are up. Have a great day.

 
At Thu May 04, 05:18:00 AM PDT, Blogger Faith said...

Sometimes, I have to enter it like 5 times before I can leave a comment.ARGGGG!

 
At Thu May 04, 05:28:00 AM PDT, Blogger Lazy Daisy said...

Wow, I totally loved your list. I could probably add a few more that have stumped me too. My TT is up.

 
At Thu May 04, 05:28:00 AM PDT, Blogger Norma said...

I never knew what those were called, but I can't even count the number of times, I've been blocked. Sometimes I just type in anything so a new one will come up. In fact, I got blocked on this one.

This was a great and humorous list. Thanks for stopping by my MM.

 
At Thu May 04, 05:40:00 AM PDT, Anonymous Denise said...

I hate those things!! They are hard on the eyes!

 
At Thu May 04, 06:08:00 AM PDT, Anonymous Karen said...

no kidding- they are impossible-
I was going to respond with "please don't take my heart away' but decided it might sound like a come on or something...

 
At Thu May 04, 06:10:00 AM PDT, Anonymous nancy said...

I hate those things! This was a good idea for T13!

 
At Thu May 04, 07:41:00 AM PDT, Blogger Finn said...

Do they really have to make them that hard to read? I sometimes have to do them over three or four times when I'd swear to God that I got it right the first time.

F'in spammers!

 
At Thu May 04, 07:59:00 AM PDT, Anonymous Caryn said...

Absolutely hilarious!!! I HATE those things, though they saved my butt from spam when I had a blogger account. I always get the long ones.

 
At Thu May 04, 08:08:00 AM PDT, Blogger Chana said...

It's like abstract art! I love the pigrape one! Sick, but funny!

 
At Thu May 04, 08:36:00 AM PDT, Blogger Emily said...

I think I need to go lay down now...

LOL

 
At Thu May 04, 08:42:00 AM PDT, Blogger twiga92 said...

LOL! Yeah, those are pretty tricky!

 
At Thu May 04, 09:11:00 AM PDT, Blogger Angie said...

Oh my gosh, this is the funniest TT ever! :) Most of those are just horrible! Great idea for a TT!

My TT is up.

 
At Thu May 04, 09:44:00 AM PDT, Blogger Sherri said...

Clever idea for a 13...I find those frustrating sometimes too!

Thanks for visiting my site:)

 
At Thu May 04, 10:01:00 AM PDT, Blogger TNChick said...

I can't stand captchas! What is even worse and when people have captchas and comment moderation on!

 
At Thu May 04, 10:10:00 AM PDT, Blogger Joan said...

Oh my goodness! some of those were unreadable! Interesting idea -- must have taken quite some time to put this post together!

Thanks for coming by my list.

 
At Thu May 04, 10:40:00 AM PDT, Blogger The Shrone said...

A very original list! I'm glad to see that others are plagued by indecipherable captchas. Of course the spammers always get the easy to read ones!

 
At Thu May 04, 10:50:00 AM PDT, Blogger Lisa said...

I agree - some are so hard! I don't know how many times I get the error page and have to do it all over again. A necessary evil.

 
At Thu May 04, 10:54:00 AM PDT, Blogger ivoryfrog said...

These things drive me nuts. I know that they are needed for the spam and all that but why do they have to be so difficult to read? LOL!

Happy Thursday!

At Thu May 04, 11:08:00 AM PDT, Blogger Suzy said...

(snicker) That is a great list! You know, blogger has a "handicapped" feature on their word ver. now - looks like somebody may need to use it!!!

 
At Thu May 04, 11:37:00 AM PDT, Blogger Ruth said...

This was great! I hate it when I get it wrong, makes me feel kinda dumb!! Very funny TT and the one about the pig...that is just wrong!! Thanks for stopping by mine.

 
At Thu May 04, 12:14:00 PM PDT, Anonymous Tricia said...

This is a really good list. I hate those things too! I always feel sorry for anyone that might be dyslexic, I mean if it's hard enough for most of us to see the letters and numbers properly and manage to get them right, then how much more difficult must it be for someone with a reading problem?

What I really hate is when you do get it right but it keeps on telling you that you didn't.

 
At Thu May 04, 12:23:00 PM PDT, Blogger Natsthename said...

Thanks for the visit to my T13. LOL. That was GREAT! I am often befuddled by what is in those boxes and sometimes I have to enter the guess more than once. SOOOO freakin' frustrating!

 
At Thu May 04, 12:28:00 PM PDT, Blogger *Skittles* said...

Cool TT! I hate trying to type those litte codes in.

PS: wnerbds LOL

 
At Thu May 04, 01:00:00 PM PDT, Blogger Ames said...

Those things drive me nuts too.. but I have one on my blog to keep out the spam bots. :(

Ok... I'm now convinced I am not challenging my readers quite enough with Blogger's simple ones.....

you got a CAPTCHA for your comments too!!!

but you really taught me something, i knew what those word verification were for, but i never knew what they were called til now. in MSN/hotmail, those are called HIP challenges, i think. :)

thanks for stopping by My TT :)

Holy Crap! There was a prize? Kick ass!

So, so late to this party. My life is kind of crazy and for that reason alone I apologize for not getting here before. I kept meaning to, but life and a crashing computer kept getting in my way.

You crack me up. I love these captchas. Here. I hate them anywhere else. Hate them.

I will be emailing you after I read the rest of your blog or at least a good part of it. You really make me laugh.
