One small idea, which would solve the "creativity problem"

** The user is given a paragraph of text (one sentence would suffice).
a) there's no need for an extenside DB of sentences.
b) the text could be something funny... to read before registration :)
c) could be set by the user

** Requirement: Type in the first/last [picture1] letter(s) of [picture2].

[picture1] = first/1st/last 2/10th
[picture2] = <some word>/1st word/last word
<some word> = can be a totally different word than the ones in the paragraph

This works for:
1. who can read
2. who can count

The only problem is crippling very well the contents of the 2 pictures, so 
that no A.I. could identify the content.
