“If it weren’t for Spring Forward and Fall Back, I’d never get any exercise at all”

“Spring Forward, Fall Back” is how people set clocks, but there is a joke:

“If it weren’t for Spring Forward and Fall Back, I’d never get any exercise at all.”

“Spring forward, fall back—my annual exercise program” is a Maxine.com cartoon drawing that appeared in March 2009. “If it weren’t for spring forward and fall back, I’d never do any exercise at all” is a Maxine.com cartoon drawing that appeared in March 2013.


Wikipedia: Daylight savings time
Daylight saving time (DST) or summer time is the practice of advancing clocks during summer months by one hour so that light extends into the evening hours—sacrificing normal sunrise times. Typically, users of DST adjust clocks forward one hour near the start of spring and adjust them backward in the autumn to “normal” or regular time.

New Zealander George Vernon Hudson proposed the modern idea of daylight saving in 1895. Germany and Austria-Hungary organized the first implementation, starting on 30 April 1916. Many countries have used it at various times since then, particularly since the energy crisis of the 1970s.

The North American mnemonic “spring forward, fall back” (also “spring ahead ...”, “spring up ...”, and “... fall behind") helps people remember which direction to shift clocks.

spring forward, fall back, and then with the random leaping today. Time keeping has become too much like exercise.
