We’ve all run into CAPTCHAs, those annoying registration fields you never get right on the first try. But CAPTCHAs do play a valuable role, keeping spambots out by verifying that you’re a human. On top of this, reCAPTCHA serves a greater good, having you digitize old books in the process.
CRAPCHA doesn’t serve a dual purpose. It barely serves a single purpose. And it isn’t to keep spammers out.
What CRAPCHA does is annoy users by presenting a CAPTCHA with indecipherable text. Nothing new so far? Well, CRAPCHA attempts are posted to the CRAPCHA board, providing amusement for all. You can even click on a timestamp to save one for posterity. Try it out for yourself:

If you run a site and want to spring this on your unsuspecting guests, simply copy and paste the following code.

Word of warning, CRAPCHA doesn’t actually validate anything. On the other hand, it’s fun.
