“What do you call a snowman with a six pack?"/"An abdominal snowman.”

A Yeti or “Abominable Snowman” riddle is:

Q: What do you call a snowman with a six pack?
A: An abdominal snowman.


“Abominable” means something very bad or unpleasant—an abomination. “Abdominals” are the stomach muscles. The “Abdominal Snowman” pun has been cited in print since at least 2006.


Wikipedia: Yeti
In the folklore of Nepal, the Yeti (/ˈjɛti/) or Abominable Snowman (Nepali: हिममानव himamānav, lit. “snow man") is an ape-like entity, taller than an average human, that is said to inhabit the Himalayan region of Nepal, Bhutan, and Tibet. The names Yeti and Meh-Teh are commonly used by the people indigenous to the region, and are part of their history and mythology. Stories of the Yeti first emerged as a facet of Western popular culture in the 19th century.

Abominable means something that is very bad, unpleasant, something that causes revulsion.  Abominable (no d) sounds a lot like abdominal (has the letter d) and remember, abdominal refers to the stomach.
