Well, what you're doing then is essentially turning your security question into just another password. And if you forgot the first one, what are the odds that you remember the second one? It's fun to put Bobby Kotick as the maid of honor, but are you going to remember that that's what you did a year from now?

Unless you use the exact same thing on every website as the answer to the security question, but that's basically just as bad as just using the same password everywhere. Once someone has figured out that Bobby Kotick is the answer to your security question, they can reset your passwords everywhere.

I give valuable accounts unique passwords that I store in an encrypted, password protected Excel document - using the same password for multiple services is a recipe for disaster. Short of having a photographic memory for unique passwords no matter what you do there will always be a weak link. The goal is simply to try to minimise it.
