One can never get tired of jokes that shine a ray of light on how governments operate.

For this reason, we think you’ll love the following:

One morning a husband returns after several hours of fishing and decides to take a nap.


Although not familiar with the lake, his 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.”

“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.

Never mess with a woman that reads because there’s good reason to believe she thinks as well!

This joke is funny because it demonstrates how a little bit of thinking can outwit a bully (H/T The Federalist Papers).

Thinking also comes in handy when dealing with government bullies, who seem to be everywhere, not just slinking around in taxpayer-funded offices in Washington, D.C.

This joke is great because we all know the government takes every chance it gets to bully people into accepting itsliberal agenda — but most of time, they can be outsmarted.

Please share this joke on Facebook and Twitter if you’d like to see government bullying stop.
