Never Argue With A Woman

"Mom-Mom" Lorraine clipped this little joke out of her Florida Elks newspaper and sent it to me in the mail (like U.S. Mail, with an envelope & stamp)...
One morning, a husband returns the boat to their lakeside cottage 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, puts her feet up, and begins to read her book. The peace and solitude are magnificent.

Along comes a Fish & 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 I see 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.”

“Have a nice day ma’am,” and he left.

MORAL: Never argue with a woman who reads. It’s likely she can also think. I understand the humor, and I don't often argue with my wife. Despite her general lack of interest in reading (does Facebook count?) she kicked cancer's butt, so I know what she'd do to me. That being said, I hope Mom-Mom sent this to me because I like fishing, not because she thinks I'm a closet deviant...uhhh....right?
