Word Verification

Many of us have Word Verification activated on our blogs, to prevent something… I don’t know what, but it seems like a reasonable thing to activate in order to protect your blog from unimaginable who knows what. However, when I was commenting on a friend’s blog tonight, my word verification was “KWOOPY”.

Now I wasn’t an English major, but really now – is KWOOPY a word? If so, then use it in a sentence. My kid has a kwoopy little cough? How can you verify a word that isn’t a word?

So then for fun, I pretended like I was commenting on other blogs, so I could check out my theory that word verification is a total farce. BINGO! My next five words, no kidding, were
bathesc
ponpadoo
pediti
qaucke
aazoti

Bathesce – the essence of a warm, soothing bath?
Ponpadoo – gotta be a 1950’s style hair do
Pediti – sounds like an itty bitty foot
Qaucke – can you even have a q not followed by a u?
Aazoti – maybe a new type of pasta?

My conclusion? Word verification is a left wing conspiracy to usurp the fundamentals of English. There can be no other valid assumption.

I miss you, too. Want to come back and teach preschool Sunday school? I only need 210 teachers this year...the most exciting year in the history of our whole church with the new kids building opening up. Please pray that we don't get discouraged as we seek those the Lord has called to teach his precious little ones. It can be so hard and frustrating. I get so tired of the excuses and selfishness. And yet, we know we only want the ones who come in obedience. Know what i mean? Love you -

I think it is a conspiracy. I turned the crazy thing off on my blog. So far I've had no spam or anything bad happen. Keeping my fingers crossed.
