           A Woman Who Reads
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 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." "He said have a nice day ma'am," and he left.

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