A Non-Fish Story

One morning during a relaxing vacation at the lake, a husband returned after several hours of fishing and decided to take a nap. Although not familiar with the lake, his wife decided to take the boat out. She motored out a short distance, anchored, and read her book.

Along came a Game Warden in his boat. He pulled up alongside the woman. "Good morning, Ma'am. What are you doing?"

Thinking it should have been obvious, she replied, "Reading a book."

"You're in a restricted fishing area," he informed her.

"Officer, 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," the woman told him.

"But I haven't even touched you," replied the startled game warden.

"That's true," said the woman. "But you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment."

"Have a nice day ma'am." The officer turned his boat around and left.


MORAL: Never argue with a woman who reads. It's likely she can also think.
