Word verification

Posted: Tuesday, July 01, 2008 by Travis Cody in

I was visiting Marsha at Rambling Thoughts not too long ago. She has word verification to guard against spammers.

I kid you not...when I left my comment, my word verification was imafakub.

Take a minute.

Sound it out.

Say it out loud.


I'm not good enough to make up that kind of funny.

    Well, at least you're honest enough to admit it. Most people wouldn't admit that tharafakup. Although, I think you're OK, but you know yourself better than I do.
    Have a great day.

  1. Roger says:

    Hahahahaha nice one Travis, that would have made me laugh to even though I hate those word verifications.

  1. Anndi says:

    That's almost funny enough for me to forgive word verification ;)

  1. I've had a few that made me laugh too, but that one's gotta be at the top of the list!

  1. Ivanhoe says:

    It took me a few tries to sound it and I finally got it :o) I'm excused for my ESL...
    Good one!

  1. I got it right away. Must mean I recognize myself.

  1. I'm one too Travis. Bwahahahahaha. Have a great day sweetie. Big hug. :)

  1. Angell says:

    OMG - LMAO. Too funny.

  1. Jeni says:

    Much as I hate the darned word verification stuff, there are times that some of them do -if read phonetically - funny. This was definitely one of those cases! LOL

  1. Jamie says:

    It immediately identified the Travis we know and love.

  1. Bond says:

    I almost agree with Anndi...but hell I hate that stuff...

    How dare it talk to you,like that!

  1. Meribah says:

    Ugh. Word verifications. The puppy no likee them...but that was a cute one! LOL :D

  1. Anonymous says:

    Bwahahaahahahahaa! That is just too funny!

  1. blech i hate word verification to the point that now i either no longer comment or will try once. if it does not go through, i'm gone. life is too short to mess around with it. especially blogs with three posts and word verification. come on people! oh, sorry, didn't mean to rant. (kicks toe in dirt here). i apologize.

    and that was funny trav...

    smiles, bee

  1. Linda says:

    Now that's too funny!

    At least if I had some humorous word verifications I wouldn't mind having to type them over and over and over again on some blogs.

  1. OMG, that is too funny!

    Word verification kicks my butt. It takes me two or three times most of the time. So sad...

    I just can't see where it can be an effective tool against spam, really.

  1. Travis says:

    Drilleraa: LOL! Thanks for the support!

    Roger: I'm not a fan of it either, but that one was worth it.

    Ann: Almost.

    WT4W: I think that one is an all time classic.

    Ivanhoe: It's all the funnier for working a little harder to get it!

    Charles: LOL! I got it pretty quick the first time I read it too.

    Sandee: Admitting it with that spelling isn't so bad, right?

    Angell: Yup!

    Jeni: Some of them make me giggle. But most of them are just irritating.

    Jamie: Bwahahahahaha! That's me!

    V: I know! But I forgave it because it was so funny.

    Meri: Yup.

    Lois: I know!

    Bee: Rant away my dear.

    Linda: Maybe that's the answer...make the word verifications all funny!

  1. Julie says:

    Oh man...I nearly forgot about this! It's just as funny as when you told me right when it happened.

    Could that possibly mean imafakub too? Geee....

    Gimme some silly!

  1. Oh, Lord. Fakin' it again, I see.

    (I STILL hate those word verifications. Blech!)

  1. *LOL!* That's sofa king funny! ;)

  1. jennifer says:

    I think this would make a FABULOUS personalized tag. And if they didn't catch WTF, I think you could totally pull it off.


  1. Ha! Ha! There's a good word verification. Even if it's pretty lengthy! (> 5 alphabets)

  1. Marsha says:

    [snickering] At least my blog has finally brought some humor to some folks...........LOL

  1. Travis says:

    CWM: I guess it works for some. But sometimes it sure is tough to make out the characters.

    Julie: I know! Silly is as silly does I say!

    Songbird: I'm a master faker!

    Lana: Oh sofa king! I know the sofa king!

    Jennifer: Now there's an idea!

    Terra: I didn't mind typing that one because it gave me the giggles.

    Marsha: LOL! That was definitely a classic.

  1. Kimmie says:

    Kimmie *giggling*...that made me laugh out loud! How funny. ;-)

  1. Rhea says:

    It took me a while but I got it.

  1. Akelamalu says:

    I hate word verification but some of them - well you couldn't make them up!

  1. Thanks for making me laugh!! Ha!

  1. Travis says:

    Kimmie: Heheheheheheheee!

    Rhea: Isn't it silly?

    Akelamalu: Sometimes it can be fun.

    Mimi: You're welcome!
