Yes, that latter option was just a joke. I wouldn’t actually use that. Lately I’ve been using “What is 2 + 2?” Not sure if a bot could work that out or not, but I haven’t had any bot spam with it yet.

We’ve all seen the strange captchas with calculus equations and middled images asking us “how many cats?” where there’s just no way you could tell the cats from the dogs.
I prefer to keep my honeypots as filled/unfilled and accept that it’s only for stupid bots, not smart bots or human spammers. Otherwise you start snagging the cognitively disabled (or simply confusing non-disabled) and other real humans in your filter.
