Word Verification Prohibition

Today I had one where the word was uraretard (u r a retard). I thought "Yes. Yes I am. For typing into a word verification box." They're so dumb and pointless and they waste my precious precious time when I could be doing a million other productive things. Such as:

Texting my friends complaining about hangovers
Reading gossip about Taylor's lips from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (she's so stupid)
Pointing out bugs to my cats so they can eat them up!

Thinking about chocolate bars and eating them
Watching television programs about men in Alaska and their glory hole
Looking for garbage on craigslist and trying to convince Duncan we need 4 vintage suitcases and an old door

See? I don't have time to verify WORDS. They're never even real words. It bugs me so much! So myself and the lovely Krystal over at Village said "SCREW YOU" to word verification and we're starting up a word verification prohibition!

Here's a button if you're in (with the cool kids)

Otherwise, so long chummmmmmmmmmm......puh!

(I'll still read your blogs, but I'll mutter curse words under my breath and maybe pound my desk with my fists, sort of a like a chimp. It's not pretty)


  1. hahaha this is wonderful! I think I'll do the same! I've had some pretty crass ones before. I think it's like those Disney cartoonists who try to incorporate hidden phallic symbols into the dvd covers. Whoever is behind the word verification (maybe a pervy computer?) is just messing with our minds!

  2. you are so funny! I totally agree with you :)

  3. i love "chummmmmmmm p" ! bart did it once. in the soul selling episode i think? anyway, YES. down with useless words!

  4. Ha ha LOVE this! I always get the most ridiculous words.

    Speaking of ridiculous... Taylor's lips are insane and now I want a chocolate bar.

  5. yeeeeahhhhhh. what's this alaska show??

  6. ha ha this is brilliant! I'm completely with you on this one!!

  7. yessss

    i did have one once on a post about ducks, and the word veri was like 'ducklings' or something. that was kind of creepy, actually.

  8. This is perfect- I wrote this as part of a post a few months ago:

    Now in other news I have carpal tunnel syndrome- in part because my thin, dainty, aristocratic wrists are predisposed to it and in part (I choose to blame it on) WORD VERIFICATION.
    Word Verification serves no purpose that I can see. If you choose to moderate your comments then it really doesn't make sense to have this feature. Nothing frustrates me more than reading a great post- leaving a comment and then having to type in a word verification.
    Maybe I'm missing something here- Is there a reason that you choose to keep word verification on?
    Please let me know so I don't look like an ass.

    as part of this post:


    So into your button!

  9. Without fail I never get the word right on the first try. I cannot believe how many precious moments I've lost when I could be tweeting 30 Rock quotes, eating cake without a fork and hosting a solo living room dance party.

  10. WOOOT! I am soooo anti-word verification too. I hope you don't mind that I used your button in my sidebar!

    This post made me laugh out loud. You are hilarious!


  11. hilarious, because it's true!

  13. Hahaha! I never thought of it but you make a great point!

    I will get rid of mine tomorrow!


  14. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this! :)
    I definitely got rid of mine awhile ago, and I wish others would do the same! It does take up a lot of time, especially if you misspell the "captcha"


  15. LMAO! I was seriously {seriously!} just thinking this same thing. I've been meaning to do a little enlightenment post on my blog about this too. It doesn't even serve the purpose people think it does, totally pointless. I'm def grabbing the button! Thanks!!

  16. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!! I agree wholeheartedly!

  17. I'm joining you! Down with word verification!

  18. HAHHAHAAH!!! Yes, I am so with you on this!!!!!

  20. Thank you for the button. I am posting it, too.

  21. I don't get it, are you against captchas?

  22. I hate word verification too. I don't use it.


Please do!
