* An episode of ''BeavisAndButtHead'' had someone who didn't realize they had an embarrassing ATM password. A pro basketball player accidentally left his card in the machine (he tried to make it look like he had been mugged) and when our boys showed up, Beavis decided to type in a rude word just for fun. It turned out "balls" was the pro's password.

(This is an amazingly bad security practice -all you've got to do is try that password with each username 'til you get lucky- but [[RealityIsUnrealistic occasionally shows up in real life]].)

* ''Series/TheCaesars'', like ''Series/IClaudius'' after it, includes a nod to Emperor Caligula's fondness for giving his guards embarrassing passwords, such as "Cupid" or "Loveykins", which make them sound as though they are flirting with each other. "Loveykins" in particular is the last straw for Cassius Chaerea, who joins the conspiracy against Caligula.
