Mangrove Mike and his misses go to the sleepy fishing village of Manning Point each holiday. Mangrove likes to fish at the crack of dawn. The wife likes to read.
One morning Mangrove returns after several hours of fishing and decides to take a nap. Although she isn't familiar with the lake the wife decides to take the boat. She motors out a short distance, anchors, and continues to read her book.
Along comes the Fisheries Officer in his boat. He pulls up alongside and says,
"Good morning Ma'am. What are you doing?"
"Reading my book," she replies, thinking isn't that obvious?
"You're in a restricted fishing area," he informs her.
"But officer, I'm not fishing. Can't you see that?"
"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 rape," says the woman.
"But I haven't even touched you," says the game warden.
"That's true, but you do have all the equipment."
