What's the oldest password you remember?

I'm sure we all had some pretty bad passwords when we were first introduced to the internet. What's the oldest password you still remember? Any other humorous ones you remember?

Oldest I remember: samaisthebomb (I was dating a girl called Sama at the time)

Humorous ones:
I went through a phase of making passwords for my work email (passwords expired monthly) that started with qwert or just qwe. Some of the more memorable ones include:
qwertle (was thinking of Squirtle, one of my fave Pokemon)
qweltershock
qwelterbomb
qwertilicious
qwelterino (had just obtained a Nidorino while replaying Pokemon Red)

I also did some passwords with phonetic spellings of words like:
qweziklenaytchur (quizzical nature)
rainuvkayos (Reign of Chaos)

Lately though, I've taken the advice of XKCD and make long passwords: preshing.com­/20110811­/xkcd­-password­-generator/

My first is so old that I can't remember when I created it! It's still in use in a few places, so I'm not about to hand it out in public. :)

I was a bad user for awhile, only using one or two passwords at most. I use more now, and it's definitely wise to get creative quickly -- you'll be thankful if someone compromises one of your accounts and you know that they can't use the same login to raid other services.

I remember my dad's old Earthlink dial-up password from 2001: 8zqe2wsz. I have no idea how or why that's stuck with me so long, but it has.

I still remember my high school email password from '97... it was automatically assigned by the system, alphanumeric, and couldn't be changed AFAIK. Which is especially troubling when you consider I found a printout with usernames and passwords sitting in the lab printer one day...
