The Point Puzzle is a weekly puzzle challenging listeners with word puzzles and logic puzzles. Every week a winner from the last week is selected from emailed answers and announced on air and a new puzzle is posed.

Puzzle 297, week of January 14th:
My brother-in-law sent a t-shirt to my daughter recently. When we received a shipping receipt the t-shirt message was truncated. We were able to deduce the logical ending of the message. The receipt had the t-shirt text as: “My password is the last 8…” What is a smart-aleck end for this t-shirt text?
