A married couple was out in the country on a holiday.
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 rows 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 about that 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.”
“For reading a book?” asked the woman.
“Yes, this is a restricted fishing area.”
The woman throws up her hands, “But I’m not fishing, I’m just reading!”
“Yes, but you have all the equipment. You’re gonna have to come with me.”
“If you do that, I’ll have to charge you with sexual assault,” says the woman.
“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.”
The game warden says, “Have a nice day, ma’am,” and leaves.
Moral of the story:
Don’t mess with a woman who’s reading. It’s very likely that she can outthink you at the same time.
