OED please note

Yours truly, a couple of months ago:

Once in a while Blogger’s CAPTCHA routine serves up something that seems like it ought to be a word.

It’s now become more than “once in a while.” Actual samples from just this weekend:

  • bronways
  • dessi
  • hesses

“Bronways,” of course, is a Welsh bus line.

And while I still wince at these things, I have to acknowledge that they could be a whole lot worse.
