password pandemonium

New parlor game (inspired by the mess that's going on at work right now thanks to ... stuff):

Coming up with crazy but memorable passwords and testing them on HowSecureIsMyPassword.net. Favorites so far include 19Ponies=76Hooves and 4+20BlBiBaInAPi, though 5BlueBirdsIn1Tree! is apparently the best.
Oh, Blur! I've heard mixed reviews about them--either people seem to think it's best thing ever, or they run into technical issues.

The possibility of technical issues is why I'll put off resorting to a password manager for as long as possible.
I belong to too many different things to try to remember passwords offhand so I need something to remember for me; especially with the combinations it comes up with.
