A couple goes on holiday to a fishing resort at Lakes Entrance.
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 decides to take a nap.
Although not familiar with the lake’s area, the wife decides to take the boat out.
She motors out a short distance, anchors, and continues to read her book.
Along comes a fishing inspector 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 make a report.”
“If you do that, I’ll have to charge you with make love assault,” says the woman.
“But I haven’t even touched you,” says the man.
“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,” and he left.
