“Why didn’t the acrobat work in the winter?"/"He wanted to do summer-saults.”

"Somersaults” can be performed at any season, but there’s a riddle:

Q; Why didn’t the acrobat work in the winter?
A: He wanted to do summer-saults.


“Q. Why don’t acrobats work in the winter? A. They only do Summer-saults” was posted on Twitter on January 30, 2010.


Wikipedia: Somersault
A somersault (also flip, heli, and in gymnastics salto) is an acrobatic exercise in which a person’s body rotates 360° around a horizontal axis with the feet passing over the head. A somersault can be performed forwards, backwards, or sideways and can be executed in the air or on the ground. When performed on the ground it is typically called a roll. Somersault originates from an obsolete French word, sombresault, from Occitan sobresaut; and ultimately Latin – supra, “over”, and saltus, “jump”.
