There is a column that runs every so often in our little newspaper here on the bayou. It is called Surfin’ the Net. Sometimes it’s funny, sometimes not so much. Hubby was reading the column this morning and burst out laughing. He said I was going to love it since I am an avid reader. I have to admit I laughed and laughed. I absolutely loved the column and thought “I have to share this!” So, here goes.

Clever Woman

One morning a husband returns after several hours of fishing at a vacation lake 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 reads 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. For all I know you could start at any moment. I’ll have to take you in and write you up.”

“For reading a book,” she replies.

“You’re in a restricted fishing area,” he informs her again.

“I’m sorry, officer, but I’m not fishing. I’m reading.”

“Yes, but 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,” the game warden replied and he left.

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