Never Argue With A Woman

This is a lightly edited version of something that turned up in my email inbox. Something very similar has been around on the internet for some time and I’ve seen it before in email, so maybe you have too.

However, I love the “moral” at the end and I still think it’s brilliant anyway. So…


One morning, a husband returns their small boat to the landing stage at the couple’s lakeside cottage after several hours of fishing and decides to go indoors and take a nap.

Oh, dear... here comes another jerk with a death wish!A short while later, although not particularly familiar with the lake, his wife fancies the idea of taking the boat out herself. 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, politely, “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,” cries the Game Warden, indignantly.

“That’s true, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment.”

The game warden sighs and shrugs his shoulders. “Have a nice day ma’am,” he says, as he leaves.


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