I Triple-Dog-Dare You

Here’s a new game and you are invited to play.

You know the word verification you have to type before publishing a comment on a blog post? You know; the words like "sneeratz" and "zmelda," and "frogrent" that float in a text box below your draft observation, demanding that you type matching letters prior to gaining admittance to the Kingdom of Securely Approved Remarks?

Like red-jacketed soldiers at the gates of Buckingham Palace, they refuse to smile, blink, twitch, or cough while you finagle a way to publish a thought, and always, these mysterious and cryptic code-words slow down every attempt to page through a reading list. Each delay, of course, draws on longer as a result of, say, the overflowing laundry basket taunting you--or perhaps the fact that you are well aware these precious minutes were earmarked to writing on a topic not related to blog posts.

Anyway, if you are at all like me, each time you type a blend of those mixed up security enforcers--and God forbid you type them wrong because another sequence appears--then it's possible that you might spend an infinitesimal moment wondering how the code, or hyper-text or Boolian Search or the Basic Language or Cobalt--or whatever the technical initiator of these character combinations is called--creates the strings.

Each time I’m forced to verify what I see, I puzzle for a bit, then take a moment to construct a fantasy meaning behind the gibberish inscription in front of me before tapping the corresponding letters into the text box. It occurred to me recently that I may not be the only one who does this. I thought it would be fun to find out.

So here’s the game.

I’ve supplied a list of security “words” below that I’ve encountered lately.

Choose one and make up a definition OR, choose the new verification from the comment above you.

Type your definition into the comments; at the end, include the security word that appears prior to publishing your definition.

Keep it PG rated, but the funnier the better.

Be as creative as you know how, and I wouldn’t be opposed if you sent all your little bloggy friends over for a unique read and so they may add their own clever definitions.

I’ll start off with the first comment.

Here is the list:

Suravloi

Vulti
Pheawe
Trersicr
Trumical
Stosh
Nemg
Cronsele
Rephan

Hootras

A young girl who develops her bustline at an early age is said to have a set of Hootras.

My verify word was Lationou, as in, "I was born in New Orleans, used to live in Baton Rouge, but now I reside in Lationou."

Thanks for the fun exercise.
