A joke about passwords has won a competition for the funniest joke at the Edinburgh Fringe.

Stand-up comedian Nick Helm was judged to have the best joke of the festival, beating a number of better-known acts. 10 comedy critics spent two weeks hunting for the best jokes of the Edinburgh Fringe, putting their top 30 shortlist to a public vote.

You're probably wondering what this joke is by now, right? Here it is..
"I needed a password eight characters long so I picked Snow White and the Seven Dwarves."

Maybe one has to be Scottish to appreciate the humor.
Lol. It is not that funny. But one liner jokes rarely are, I prefer those with a bit of story.

I suppose with any joke, delivery is everything.

It wasn't funny, but it was clever. I think that's why people appreciated it.

[SPOILER=Warning: Spoiler!]How many programmers does it take to change a lightbulb?

None. It's a hardware problem.[/SPOILER]
is funny, even though I heard it years ago.

When I saw the thread title I thought the joke was going to be "A website asked me to enter a password. I typed 'penis' and the site said it was too short". That one is actually funnier than this one IMO :p

Haha that is funnier :) Although the first one brought a wry smile to my face.
