“Creating a Password” + “Inner Peace”

HumourI am not a huge fan of joke emails, those supposedly humorous anecdotes which are interminably doing the rounds. However, I received a couple just recently which really tickled my fancy, I actually chuckled… which is a pretty rare event indeed for this cranky old geezer.

Both were sent to me by my little brother… well, younger, not so little. The first is called “Creating A Password”. It’s something we can all relate to, I think the humor comes from the fact that it is so close to the truth!


Sorry, the password must be more than 8 characters.

Sorry, the password must contain 1 numerical character.

1 boiled cabbage

Sorry, the password cannot have blank spaces.


Sorry, the password must contain at least one upper case character.


Sorry, the password cannot use more than one upper case character consecutively.


Sorry, the password cannot contain punctuation.


 Sorry, that password is already in use!


The second, called “Inner Peace”, is  a variation on a common theme:

I’m passing this on because it worked for me today.

A doctor on TV said that in order to attain inner peace in our lives we should always finish things that we start. Since we could all use more calm in our lives, I looked around to find things I’d started but never finished.

I finished a bottle of Merlot, a bottle of Chardonnay, a bodle of Baileys, a butle of wum, the mainder of Valiuminum scriptins, an a box a choclutz. Yu has no idr how fablus I feel rite now.

Sned this to all ur frenz who need inner p*ss. An telum u luvum!

 Thanks to Ed.

  1. That’s a thigh-slapper.
    Now, I can’t believe the last error since a password can be used so many times. The only thing that would be considered “Already in use” is a username.

  2. I think that I have tried to use that one before, maybe it was mine, or one very much like it. So used the theory on the second post. But only had some wine. LMAO Thanks
