NEVER UNDERESTIMATE A READER...

Thanks to the wonderful Christine London for sharing this with me!

Never underestimate a reader...



One morning, the 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 and 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 love it. Unfortunately, around here, logic doesn't usually work
