captcha idiocy...

OK . . .I give up.

We are all familiar with the 'captcha' technology (by that brand name and others) required for posting comments at many sites. They serve a purpose I suppose ...but sometimes they are infuriating indeed.

What, for example, does this one 'say'..?? I have no idea. (Click on the image to see the larger image.)

The second word I can take a guess at . . .but wtf for the first one..?!?


. . .and yes, I know you can click for a new one. But just another layer of idiocy, IMHO.

Never a dull minute online.

Flaming hot..!!

Oh ...gawd.

I have always been a fan of 'puffy' Cheetos. Or more correctly the Cheetos brand of cheese-flavored cornmeal snack. Keep your 'crunchy' Cheetos ...gimme that bag of 'puffy' Cheetos..!!

I also love the Cheetos Flamin' Hot Cheetos. But until recently I had only seen them in the 'crunchy' form.

Today my youngest daughter brought these into the house...



Look at that golden puffy-yet-crunchy texture..!!

Look at that coating of Flamin' Hot goodness..!!

I am sure I will regret these ever came into my life . . .but for now I embrace them with all the gluttony of a pimply teenager scoring a prom date with the Homecoming queen ...OK, OK ...maybe not quite that much.

But I does have me a new snack food/junk food addiction..!!


P.S. I do see, from the Cheetos page at Wikipedia, that they apparently have been around a while . . .but the first time we have seen them here..!!
