“What is a snowman’s favorite dinner?"/"Spaghetti and snowballs.”

The dish of spaghetti and meatballs sometimes becomes “spaghetti and snowballs” in winter months. “ICED SPAGHETTI AND SNOWBALLS AGAIN?” was published in the Li’l Abner comic strip in 1969.

A riddle was posted on Twitter on December 28, 2009:

Q: What is Frosty’s favorite dinner?
A: Spaghetti and snowballs.



Wikipedia: Frosty the Snowman
“Frosty the Snowman” (or “Frosty the Snow Man”) is a popular Christmas song written by Walter “Jack” Rollins and Steve Nelson, and first recorded by Gene Autry and the Cass County Boys in 1950. It was written after the success of Autry’s recording of “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” the previous year; Rollins and Nelson shipped the new song to Autry, who recorded “Frosty” in search of another seasonal hit. Like “Rudolph”, “Frosty” was subsequently adapted to other media including a popular television special by Rankin/Bass Productions (formerly known as Videocraft International), Frosty the Snowman.

15 March 1969, Tucson (AZ) Daily Citizen, “Li’l Abner” comic by Al Capp:
ICED SPAGHETTI AND SNOWBALLS AGAIN?

March 1999, School Library Journal, pg. 164:
BLISS, Corinne Demas. Snow Day. illus. by Nancy Poydar. 47p. (Step into Reading Series). CIP. Random. 1998. PLB $11.99. ISBN 0-679-98222-1; pap. $3.99. ISBN 0-679-88222-7. LC 45810.
Because of a snow day, Emily has extra time to decide on a topic for her school report. She invites her new friend from California over to play, and Marietta suggests that they make a snow town to prevent the neighborhood boys from throwing snowballs at them. In this easy reader set in 18-point type, Bliss uses short sentence structure and repetition to describe the classmates as they make a snow fort, snow town, snow money, and even a snow restaurant with spaghetti and snowballs

Riddles are a great way for students to “play with words.” Who knew a snow person eats spaghetti and snowballs? Or is it “snow peas?”
