One morning, a woman decides to take her husband’s fishing 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, until...
Along comes a Fish and Game Warden in his boat. '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,’ says the woman, ‘I'll have to charge you with sexual assault.'
'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.' Silence. Then, 'Have a nice day ma'am,' he said, and he putt-putted off.
Moral: Never argue with anyone who reads.
It's likely that person can also think.
