I’m certain we’re all familiar with word verification codes (also known as CAPTCHA)… the random grouping of letters that come up when you fill out a form or leave a comment on someone’s blog?

I find them rather annoying yet somewhat entertaining. I mean really… what is that word?!

Today I was thinking that even though they’re nonsense, it’s so much fun to make up fictitious definitions for these odd bits of text.

Today I'm having some fun making up fictitious definitions for CAPTCHA words I've come across on other people's blogs.

Here’s a few that I came up with:

Glinged   (past tense of gling)
1. To wear glamorous bling: She was glinged out for the party.
2. Stuck, wetly: The bug guts glinged to the windshield.

Pletio
1. A Greek philosopher who lived from 626 – 532 bc. Not to be confused with Plato.
2. A patio with pleated detailing.

Sulted past tense of sult
1. Slang for insulted: She was sulted that he didn’t leave her a tip.
2. Seasoned with sult: He likes sulted ice cream but sult is rare in Texas.

Cateri
1. Alternative plural form for cataracts: He is going for surgery on both cateri.   
2. A small shop where cats are purchased. We got him as a kitten from a little cateri in Venice.

Have you ever played the word verification game? I wish I could use some of these words in my next Scrabble match with my mom. Have I got a word for you!
