Trying to prove you're a human on the internet led to one of the weirdest things to explain to anyone unfamiliar with them - CAPTCHAS. These mostly came in the form of text that would be slightly obscured and wobbly and not easily parsed by a computer...and randomly generated, meaning completely nonsensical word combinations would get spat out.

Luckily, we now have some comics that explain these random word combos so that the world can finally make sense!
