“I tried to change my password to ‘beefstew,’ but it wasn’t stroganoff”

"Stroganoff” sounds like “strong enough,” and a pun is:

“I tried to change my password to ‘beefstew,’ but it wasn’t stroganoff.”

The joke was posted on Twitter on April 1, 2015.


Wikipedia: Beef Stroganoff
Beef Stroganoff or Beef Stroganov (Russian: бефстроганов befstróganov) is a Russian dish of sautéed pieces of beef served in a sauce with smetana (sour cream). From its origins in mid-19th-century Russia, it has become popular around the world, with considerable variation from the original recipe.
