nick helm's password joke

a little while back a comedian named nick helm won an award for funniest joke at the edinburgh fringe festival, and that joke happened to focus on one of the most recognized concepts in all of security - passwords.
I needed a password eight characters long so I picked Snow White and the Seven Dwarves.
apparently it wasn't the only joke referencing security concepts either. the top 10 list of them also includes one referencing crime, and another referencing the phone 'hacking' case that was attracting so much attention earlier this year.
