Fishing for Trouble
From:  mdodick

A couple goes on vacation to a fishing resort in northern Minnesota. The  husband likes to fish at the crack of dawn. The wife likes to read.

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 continues to read 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.  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."

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