Security Humor: Password Character Requirements

NotAlwaysRight, a site that posts stories of customers causing woe has a great password reset story today:

Customer: “Are their any requirements for the password?”

Me: “The only requirement is that the password has to be at least 6 characters in length - numbers, letters or both.”

The punchline isn't what you'd expect - but should bring a smile to the face of any helpdesk or security staffer who reads it.
