Word Verification -- How it works

You are in a well-lit room of indeterminate size, surrounded by various objects -- animals, statues and body parts -- drifting in mid-air as if suspended on threads in a mobile.

Take pigeon
You have a pigeon.

Eat pigeon
The pigeon is raw. Why you speak pigeon inglish?

Take fire
Ouch ouch burny!!

Drop fire. Take mobile. Don't call me Bernie
You now have a cellphone.

Call home
Cellphone is locked. It is Bernie's.

Guess password
You hear a voice, "Prove that you are a robot. Type in the Word Verification."

You hear a voice, "That is correct. You have failed the Turing test and are not a robot. Now you must comment at Riddled or be eaten by a GRVE".

Fling cellphone

Sir, My Clients Mr Reg Spules and Ms Johnny Pliers wish to bring your attention to the unauthorised use of their band name "Shite and Onions' in your humourous Electronic newsletter.
Mr Spules and Ms Pliers are the hardest working duo in Wanganui East and do not wish to be associated with this sort of frippery. Yes FRIPPERY!
Good day to you Sir!

I prefer Eno myself but I will not hear a word against Mr Fripp.

I always thought the Library Pixies handled the captcha chores.

Damn, captcha is self-aware, now it's using numbers.

Esopus Spitzenberg is an excellent apple, one of TJefferson's favorites. Esopus Edinburgh, if an apple, has been lost to history.
