A New Fun Idea!

If you are reading this (and you are, aren’t you?) you are in for a treat – because I am going to take one of the dullest, most irritating parts of the “interacting with other bloggers” process, and turn it into FUN for all the family! Educational fun, if you can imagine such a thing! This idea has great potential to become an internet CRAZE and you are hearing about it straight from me, the innovator! Read on, in wonderment…

You know when you’ve read a post in someone’s blog and you’ve thought “Well, this isn’t as good as the stuff I write but props to them they’ve at least tried, so I should comment”? And you know that bit where you type in your witty and intelligent reply (like “LOL I do THAT!”) and then go to post it…

WELL – you know that bit where you press “Post” and then some wavy writing pops up and you have to copy it into a box, to prove you’re not a Spambot selling penis enlargers? That bit is irritating, isn’t it? You’re like “OMG, I’m not a bloody Spambot, what the hell is this stupid word anyway?”. Sometimes it is even more than one word. Ugh.

Well, that irritating bit is now going to become FUN, thanks to ME and my brilliant idea! Because I don’t WASTE that mental and annoying wavy word – I make a note of it and Google it! Yes, it really IS that simple! I Google the wavy word and then watch a whole world of information and entertainment open up, before my very eyes! It’s a great idea and now I have shared it with you! I’m cool like that.

Not convinced? Let me tell you that “Podor is the northernmost town in Senegal, Africa”. I didn’t learn that in SCHOOL;  I found out by putting it into Google, after replying on a blog. Did you know that “The EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database (also known as EMBL-Bank) constitutes Europe’s primary nucleotide sequence resource”? No? Of course you didn’t… That wavy word (emble) was supplied exclusively to me, by my ground-breaking and hilarious new hobby. I can even tell you that “squepsti”, however convincing it sounds, doesn’t exist as a word yet, which means that it is available to use, if you ever need a new adjective, for something previously inexplicable!

I need a name for this great new idea of mine. I know I’m a genius but I haven’t quite nailed it yet “WavGoogling” “Verisearching”? I dunno. Maybe you could suggest one. And link away, spread the word on this. It’s going to catch on, I tell ya and you are with me,  at the forefront!

  1. When I need to procrastinate even more, I’ll have to start doing this.

    • When I last commented on your blog, I got “gattesse” as a word. The first link taught me that in 2007, Fatten Gattesse was ICA Arab Sector Coordinator (for a Cancer Research Charity). Gattesse is a good name but FATTEN? I’m not sure I’d call my kid that.

  2. The technical name for those wavy words is “CAPTCHA” (Google that if you want to learn about how it was developed), and I think you could make some money by having T-shirts printed with some of the more obscure words you find. What a conversation starter! “Hey, what does ‘fenister’ mean on your shirt there?” “I don’t know – I just bought it in the gift shop ’cause I liked the color.” Yeah – it could be the new Pet Rock or Rubik’s Cube…

    • Haha! I knew you’d understand how cool my (so far a bit slow to take off) idea is. I think the problem is, I’m ahead of my time.

      My fave T-shirts are: “Jesus is coming (quick, try to look busy)”, my b/f’s “Bastard” shirt, and a fake Betty Ford Clinic T-shirt I saw in a shop in Brighton.

  3. That is a fun new idea. :)

    I read somewhere that many times those wavy letters are also from old books and letters that have been distorted over time. Using them this way put them in front of the public to get their take on what the letters are, thus helping to decipher them at the same time. 999 out of 1000 say that looks like an R!

    An interesting theory – not sure if it’s ever been proven. :)

  4. I usually just cuss when I see that wavy word and after my third or fourth failed attempt at posting, I give up on the whole matter.

    I hope you’re not seeing it on my blog. I want spambots selling penis enlargers. All the men I know need one.

    • Hahaha…WHY did I have to “Approve” this comment?! You’ve been on the “Approved” list for ages. Madness. I don’t get the wavy words for you but I bet you got them here this time.

  5. oh, clever girl!
    But I’ve got such a busy Saturday ahead, I dare not even begin this game…;)

  6. Captchoogling?

  7. Masturbation… oh no, wait – that terms all ready been taken.

    How about: Woogle.

  8. [shakes head] This is like that time in 5th grade when I came up with the idea to write “The Man in the Iron Mask” and my mother had to tell me that someone had already written it.
