Never argue with a woman

Ah, this gem came from my mom this morning. Thought I would share.

One morning, the husband returns the boat to their lakeside
cottage after several hours of fishing and decides to take a nap.

Although not familiar with the lake, the wife decides to take the boat

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, ‘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,’ 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,’ and he left.


Never argue with a woman who reads.

It’s likely she can also think.


Here’s to 200!

GRIN # 200

I decided today to honor the number 200 in proper fashion. Check it out:

  • 200 is the smallest number which cannot be made prime by changing one of its digits (whatever the hell that means).
  • A 200-million-year-old fossil of a skeleton reptile called the tanytrachelos is now on display in the New Jersey State Museum in Trenton. “I thought it should be in New Jersey,” says fossil finder Steven Stelz. “It wasn’t getting enough exposure.” And New Jersey is such a hot tourist spot so that makes sense.
  • Recently divers found a 200-year-old bottle of champagne on a shipwreck in the Baltic Sea–the oldest beverage on record ever consumed. Apparently, it’s fantastic and, corked, would sell for $68,000 a bottle. Why’d ya open it??
