For Minnesota

A couple go on vacation to a fishing resort in northern Minnesota. The husband   likes to fish at the crack of dawn. The wife likes to read.

One morning the husband returns after several hours of fishing and takes a nap. Although not familiar with the lake, the wife decides to take the boat out. She motors out a short distance, anchors, and continues to read her book.

Along comes a forest policeman 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. 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 policeman.

“That’s true,” replied the woman, “But you have all the equipment.”

  1. Hahahaha, that’s awesome! And such a good example of the density of some rules >.<
    There’s this article my mom told me about that had something like this in it – a woman who’s terrified of flying was taking her first long trip in a plain. She was nervous and scared and twitchy – she also happened to be a smoker. To make herself feel calmer, she took a cigarette out and just held it, because it was familiar. The flight attendants gave her hell about it, even though she WAS NOT LIGHTING THE CIGARETTE. Sheesh.
