“Why don’t you wear snow boots?"/"Because they’ll melt.”

A snow riddle is:

Q: Why don’t you wear snow boots?
A: Because they’ll melt.


The joke has been cited in print since at least 2003.


11 November 2003, Wisconsin State Journal (Madison, WI), “In the end, it’s all about Ahna,” pg. D1:
Why shouldn’t you wear snow boots? Because they’ll melt.
