Once a "service desk person" had to create my account in front of me (I never say I work into IT). It went like this:
[...]
"What's your preferred colour?"
"Five"
"Sorry, I need a colour name"

"Ok, but please do...just this time..."
"Oh, it created your account successfully!"

This dialog popups into my mind every time I see this dumb "password forgotten questions"
