Q: What tool can you use to cut water?
A: A sea-saw!
Explanation: To understand this joke you must first know what a seesaw is. A seesaw is a toy/ game/ ride that you might see on a playground where children play (it is also known as a teeter-totter). Imagine a long piece of wood that is balanced in the middle; one person sits on each end of the board and as one goes up, the other goes down.
A saw is a tool used to cut things. Of course, you cannot cut water… even with a saw. This joke is funny because seesaw sounds like sea-saw and both end in “saw,” a tool (saw is the past tense verb of to see). (Just to be clear: the fools part of the title refers to someone trying to cut water, not the amazing performance below!!)
Here are some gymnasts performing on a see saw- Do not try this at home!
