There's a wonderful story at http://www.zug.com/pranks/credit/ by someone who
tried to see how b0rken he could make his signature before anyone complained.
He tried at various times a random scribble, a crosshatched scribble, a
regular grid, an 'X', a drawing of a stick-figure person, his name in Egyptian
hieroglyphics, various famous people's names, and even "I stole this card".
No-one ever complained.
