DTV Captcha

Captcha's are those irritating series of letters which are partially obscured that you have to enter in order to complete a process on some websites. The intent is to prevent computer programs from automatically completing these things, sending out spam or other equally irritating things.

I had gone to the government's DTV site to claim my coupon for the digital converter box and got the following captcha (sorry about the poor quality, the screen shot didn't come out as well as I'd hope, but you should get the idea.)

Should I be offended? Are they trying to tell me something?
