Its called an accessible captcha.

Its a winner, until computers are smarter than humans.

examples.
What color is an orange?
Dog, bus, rocket, tomato. Which is an animal?
Red, Green, Blue. Which starts with the letter B?

my comment spam has gone from a few dozen a day to ZERO.

Of course this only works because I am not a massively popular site, but still, it works. Even at scale, just have more questions, and it will still work im sure.

if someone targets me, and decides to hardcode the answers to my captchas into their spam tool, I just write new questions. I will not be worth the effort very quickly. Plus I run askimet anyway to double check.

Just thought I would share. It made me giddy.

I think we had a thread about this a while ago... I love the notion and if you had a significantly large DB of questions, it'd be a bitch for someone to defeat you - unless they brute forced your site enough to try to get every question.

Or they hire Indians, in which case none of it works.

I just saw an interesting one the other day that asked me (I went through it a couple times because I was intrigued), What sport does Tiger Woods play? What is the last name of president of the united states? And something about Lance Armstrong that I don't remember...

This has the benefit of being current and changeable, but will also throw knuckleheads off that don't know who the president is. Obviously, there's got to be some kind of spelling adjustment or something for people that are close enough, but think that "Golf" is spelled with a silent M.

True. I thought of that route as well.
Not show the answer in the question. But I decided on the even dumber approach.

The one that is the best so far that I came up with is:
2+2=4 What is the first number in the equation?

xrummer for example, would find the +, think its a math captcha and solve it, giving the wrong answer. lol

and of course you cant beat the indians, not even trying for that. Its futile.
