Wirid

Leigh likes to take some of the word verifications that some of us have set for our commenters and give them definitions. For instance this one she decided means "Happy New Year" in Capcha. Some of them strike me as funny and sounding like they should be a real word, too.

I just commented on someone's blog and the word verification was "wirid". I think that sounds like a word for something that is just so very odd that it goes beyond mere "weird". And the very next blog I read provided the picture to go along with the definition. Thank you Martha, for that very "wirid" picture of the giant tooth.

hahaha Of course when I saw the title, my mind immediately said, "Weird."

I usually make a comment if the captcha matches the content of the entry. I have seen that a few times. Always cracks me up.

I see what you mean! The 3rd photo put a squid in my mind, standing behind the statuette couple!
That may be an indication I've had enough coffee this evening.....

I was kinda insulted a few days ago when the word verification called me a Bobag. lol

I like the sound of wirid. I like words that paint pictures by their sound.

I had a running list of the very same idea. Some are really funny especially if you can find a picture to go with the word. Your reads have always been one of my favorites and for some reason I have to keep resetting the "Follow this blog" in order to get your alerts on Reader. Happy New Year my friend ~ Take care,
Katie

Hunnie do you need something to keep your mind occupied? LOL. This is cracking me up.
Hugs, Joyce

Lori, I suspect that some of you have far to much time on your hands or have very active minds. I do enjoy it!!
Regards, Bill

I love the word verifications--sometimes they make the funniest words!

Indigo said...

I thought of a strange form of weird myself. Someone once told me the captcha was made to work on hints, words taken from the post itself. I'm not sure how true that is. (Hugs)Indigo

Knowing you as a wordsmith, Lori, this was bound to tickle your fancy. The word verification does come out with some wild and wonderful things. Pity Blogger does not embrace Captcha, which supports a good cause.

Bea said...

I've had a few chuckles and raised eyebrows over some of the strange arrangement of letters that show up in the verifications box as well. Happy New Year to you... sorry it took me so long to get back here again. Glad to see that you are well, and the family is well. WIshing you a wonderful 2009. Bea

Yeah some of these word verifications are quite amusing. I had one today "pukes" ~ which I brought to the attention of the blog author.
