These British-themed Captchas inject fun into proving you’re not a robot
More websites are turning to pictorial Captchas these days, involving such things as clicking on every picture that shows a road sign, or a bus, or a shop front – it’s riveting stuff. Funny tweeter, Gareth Bellamy, has come up with something much more entertaining, as long as you’re very familiar with British culture. Could you prove your humanity with these?

There’s a Vic and Bob Captcha.
Choo, choo, choose Michael Portillo.
Don’t you want a classic Human League album option, baby?
You will select this only once …
Can you detect the Bergerac characters?
Bet you didn’t ex-spectre Captcha like this.
Gareth’s British Captchas have gone down well on Twitter, as these comments show:
I'm 100% backing this 🤣 https://t.co/tNTR1H5eVY

After being asked to identify “crosswalks” yesterday, I’m all in favour of this. https://t.co/U7uxCJgMXx

They wouldn’t let me log into a website yesterday without conceding that a ride-on lawnmower was a “tractor”.

I think a petition is needed to bring these excellent captchas into use – brilliant!

Someone named @soapachu pointed out an unexpected bonus for some of the population.
These are amazing. I'd fail every one and never buy anything online again.
