CRAPCHA stands for Completely Ridiculous And Phony Captcha that Hassles for Amusement. It doesn't keep spammers out. It doesn't crowdsource book scanning either. CRAPCHA's only job is to baffle users, and you can add it to your site today.

Love it. Though I'm honestly not sure whether most real captchas would hold up in a blind test against these...

These drive me exactly as crazy as the real thing. Success!

(Heads-up: looks like someone's decided it's funny to guess words like "nigger" so they get posted in the "Recent CRAPHCHAs" section.)

This is wonderful. I don't allow comments on my sites, but the infrastructure is there to do so, so it might be funny to make it look turned on. I probably won't though.

I'm surprised this hasn't been posted to Metafilter yet. Guess it's up to me!

This is so funny. Is there any repository of all of the things people have tried to enter?
