Just To Verify......

 A few weeks ago, I stopped asking for a verification character copy on any comments I received.  It does save you time and a lot of squinting as the new black and white double-word replacement is a pain in the arse!  But I just had to pay some sort of homage to the previous version.

The old verification codes used to entertain me to the point of taking a text snap of  the word for some reason or other.  (Apologies for the HUGE spacing in this post, it's certainly not the way I formatted it. I'll try to neaten it soon). Here's just a few of the old V's examples that I've loved and will miss.......:


Some sounded cute:










***********************************************************************************************************************************************************
Some suited fishermen but frightened dogs:

****************************************************************************************************************************************************************
Some were insulting to old people and the young:

 



















**************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Some were indecent:












**************************************************************************************************************************************************************
There was plenty Scottish vernacular:


What a Scotsman might say to someone pathetic:  "Sad you are!"
What Scotsmen turn into after a heavy bevvy session, too many beers. Idiots. Asses.















Something a Scotsman promises. Give you his word  "swers" it will 'no happen again!'
Something a Scotsman, after having one too many, has extreme difficulty in achieving. Unable to function sexually.












What a Scotsman is in danger of after topping up his 15 pints with a kebab or haggis supper (with broon sauce).  The act of vomiting. Performing a  " witie. "







A Scottish child that has turned from cherub to ASBO material overnight. Demon child. Close fodder.














*********************************************************************************************************************************************************
Some, a bit spooky:
This verification popped up at the end of a post about - a zoo!























And this one after Rosemarie and I agreed that this priest was a bit hunky.  Just imagine if that 'n' rounded it off instead of the la!
*******************************************************************************************************************************************************
Then there was the ones you so longed to alter yourself!







                



 (Now that's just taking the iss)
**********************************************************************************************************************************
Some a tad controversial:  (some were worse!)

**********************************************************************************************************************************************************  My favourites are the ones that popped up the nights I drank the odd glass of wine and played music online between my Facebook and Blogger friends.
  What could have been more fitting than these little diamonds:




























  *******************************************************************************************************************************************************
So in pure honour of the old verification function, I'm seeing you off to the beat of the (Eastenders style):

LOL. I found them amusing, too. Wow, you have some great ones. I sometimes wrote mine down then lost the paper. Bloggers are in revolt of the WV. A shame says I.

Those were the days!
Actually, every time one of those double difficult ones pop up, I now go back (via edit) and complain. I really can't see the point. What bloody robot would be interested in my blog? Precious few people do bother to read it anyway, only the supremely intelligent and discerning seek me out and of those, only the absolutely creme de la creme leave a comment. Have I heard from you lately? I can't keep this up... haha!

Double trouble! Came back to say how much I enjoyed your collection! About a year ago helen collected a brace of them and constructed a nonsense poem. Hope she finds yours and we might see more.

I used to love the verifying words! I hate this 2 word business now. I am sure someone started a website ages ago which gave all the verification words they had ever seen a meaning, and created this really bizarre almost-alternate reality... I'm going to have to research it!

I'd love a website dedicated to V nonsense! Hopefully I can find a copy of Helen's poem! Thanks Stafford and Sam!

Those were great! I once did a poem with the verification words I had collected over a week! I started getting annoyed when they began requiring two words and made the typeset difficult to read. Half the time I was wrong and had to try again!
