One morning the husband returns after several hours of fishing and
decides to take a nap. Although not familiar with the lake, the
wife decides to take the boat out. She motors out a short distance,
anchors, and reads her book.
Along comes a Game Warden in his boat. He pulls up alongside the
woman and says, ”Good morning, Ma’am. What are you doing?”
”Reading a book,” she replies, (thinking, ”Isn’t that obvious?”)
”You’re in a Restricted Fishing Area,” he informs her.
”I’m sorry, officer, but I’m not fishing. I’m reading.”
”Yes, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could
start at any moment. I’ll have to take you in and write you up.”
”If you do that, I’ll have to charge you with sexual assault,” says
”But I haven’t even touched you,” says the game warden.
”That’s true, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment.”
MORAL: Never argue with a woman who reads. It’s likely she can also think.
