Rhymes with "politician"

Somebody (I'm almost sure it was Lynn, but I haven't found the original post yet) once pointed out that the random-letter captcha used on Blogger and some other services occasionally generates something that ought to be an actual word.

I have yet to get anything I can play on a Scrabble board, but what I have here is awfully close — if you think of Taiwan as close.

Addendum: It was Lynn, and here's her original post.
