Do you ever wonder how they come up with the words they make us type in the little word verification box?

I was commenting on a blog, and I noticed I was being asked to type “Prado”. It reminded me of a favorite movie, Serendipity. I’m not usually a fan of John Cusack (don’t hate me), but for a split second, I found him quite appealing in this movie.

Anyway, I’m rambling, but it reminded me of when Molly Shannon’s character buys a knockoff wallet on the street that says “Prado” instead of “Prada”.

Maybe the word verification fairies were thinking of that movie when they selected “prado”? Or maybe they were thinking of the other 36 million uses of “prado” according to Google?

Just the useless things I think about when I’m bored. Ok, bye for now.

    Oh DARN! I was really hoping you had an answer for how they pick those words! I always wonder if it's somehow related to the post itself because I've commented on some that really seemed that way. Oh well…the world may never know!

    P.S. when I just commented the word verification was "grado." See? Doesn't it seem like it might be related to the post content or title?

    I read "Prado" in your blog title and immediately thought of the movie Serendipity! πŸ™‚
