A couple went on vacation to a fishing resort.
The husband liked to fish at the crack of dawn; his wife preferred to read.
One morning the husband returned after several hours of fishing and decided to take a nap.
The wife, to escape her snoring husband, decided to take the boat out. Since she was not familiar with the lake, she rowed out to the middle, anchored the boat, and started reading her book.
Along came the sheriff in his boat. He pulled up alongside and said, “Good morning, ma’am. What are you doing here?”
“Reading a book,” she replied, thinking, “Is this guy blind or what?”
“You’re in a restricted fishing area,” he informed her.
“But, Officer, I’m not fishing. You can see that, surely.”
“But you have all the equipment, ma’am. I’ll have to write you up.”
“If you do that, I will charge you with rape,” returned the irate woman.
“But I haven’t even touched you,” the sheriff objected.
“That’s true; but you have all the equipment.”
THE MORAL: Never argue with a woman who reads.
