Favorite Word Verification Word

What a great presale this morning! Ticketmaster's word verification page did wonders for my vocabulary as I spent 2 hours checking for tickets.

So the question is, what was your favorite word verification word from the presale?

Mine:

samovar - n. A metal urn with a spigot, used to boil water for tea and traditionally having a chimney heated by coals

gittith = \Git"tith\, n. [Heb.] A musical instrument, of unknown character, supposed by some to have been used by the people of Gath, and thence obtained by David. It is mentioned in the title of Psalms viii., lxxxi., and lxxxiv. --Dr. W. Smith.

I thought it was like, "Thou wilt gittith a ticket"

I got something starting with "out", like "ouloud" or "outfox". Heh.

It should have been outlast, outwit, or whatever the Survivor motto is.

I had one that I thought said "screwed". I laughed my ass off.

Turns out that it was black lettering on a splotchy dark gray background and actually said "sinewed", but it makes it no less ironic.

Wouldn't picking out the words for that be a fun job? (yeah, I know it's all automated, but stiil... it would be a fun job if it existed).
