Captcha a Definition!

Oh, those Captchas. Funny lil critters, aren’t they? Regan Black had a great idea last week—why not create a Captcha dictionary? So, I went over to Sam Morton’s blog, which I know has Captcha on his comments (sorry for all the deleted comments, Sam!) and came up with these two gems. The first was easy for me, but the second I’m going to need your help with!

Ckoxic: The state of being trapped in a small room with a person who has liberally doused themselves with eye-watering, nose-hair incinerating amounts of perfume.

Grawcinc: I’m stuck on this one. Something to do with Tim McGraw’s computer, maybe?

So, help me out by leaving your own suggested Captcha definition as a comment!

Oh, and by the way, I learned from my research that Captcha stands for Completely Automated Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart. (Even leaving out the to’s and and’s, shouldn’t it then be Captttcha?)

Beware the sound of crying children, watch out for the barmaids, and whatever you do, don't let the Pegasus spit on you.

grawcinc - maybe the weird sound the cat makes in the process of yawning?

Or is it just my cat?

Oooh! Good one!

I found another as I avoided editing my book earlier


Is that like the new electronic version of a Nanny from Europe?

spolo- polo with spoons?

And how would that work if you are riding a horse? Or maybe they are riding the spoons?

Oooh, I know! It's like the spoon race, on horseback!

I don't have a definition but I do like your idea. . . sometimes I try to anagram the captchas. . . though these 2 are beyond help on that score.
