Everyone who uses the internet is familiar with the various CAPTCHA (Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart) security checks where you have to type the characters shown to prove you’re a human. The letters are always distorted or disguised in some way that prevents a computer from interpreting them. Unfortunately that sometimes means a frustrated human can’t interpret them either.
CAPTCHA images are generated by computers. And there’s at least one computer out there that doesn’t censor itself (blame the human programmer). Here’s a screenshot of what I just encountered:
After I stopped laughing, I refreshed the page a couple of times just to see if maybe someone had hacked the site. The letters changed each time. It was legit.
Still chuckling …

Hit Girl would have been pleased.
I’m not familiar with Hit Girl, but she looks like someone who would be pleased.
If you have not seen the movie Kick-Ass, I highly recommend it.

Yep, she looked like that kind of girl when I saw the stills.
the captcha must be pretty angry with that girl. haha
Gee, I hadn’t been there long enough to be disliked. Must have been the visitor before me.
haha, it must be. 🙂
Glad I didn’t have a mouthful of coffee when that came up.
Nope, didn’t make me laugh … made me cackle madly and scare Luke out of the room. Success! 😀
Set a thousand monkeys at a thousand typewriters for an infinite amount of time and one of them will write War and Peace by accident. Or so the story goes. 🙂
That’s what I’ve heard. I wonder how many monkeys it took to produce this?
Certainly early morning coffee snortable.
Oops, hope I didn’t make you do that.
even if laughter makes life messy, it’s worth it!
If my laughter stops, I may be able to think of a comment.
The laughter is sufficient.
