Google Accounts has retard as a CAPTCHA

A CAPTCHA (an initialism for “Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart”, is a type of challenge-response test used in computing to determine whether or not the user is human. A common type of CAPTCHA requires that the user type the letters of a distorted image, sometimes with the addition of an obscured sequence of letters or digits that appears on the screen.

Okay so I get the funniest thing in the mail today. A buddy of mine apparantly got this while he was associating his GMail Id with one of Google’s Orkut Service. He gets the CAPTCHA as “retard”
