    For those that don't know him, Major General Peter Cosgrove is an Australian.


    General Cosgrove was interviewed on the radio recently.
    Read his reply to the lady who interviewed him concerning guns and children.
    Regardless of how you feel about gun laws you have to love this!
    This is one of the best comeback lines of all time.
    This is a portion of an ABC radio interview between a female broadcaster and General

    Cosgrove who was about to sponsor a Boy Scout Troop visiting his military Headquarters.

    FEMALE INTERVIEWER:
    So, General Cosgrove, what things are you going to teach these young boys when they visit your base?

    GENERAL COSGROVE:
    We're going to teach them climbing, canoeing, archery and shooting.

    FEMALE INTERVIEWER:
    Shooting! That's a bit irresponsible, isn't it?

    GENERAL COSGROVE:
    I don't see why, they'll be properly supervised on the rifle range.

    FEMALE INTERVIEWER:
    Don't you admit that this is a terribly dangerous activity to be teaching children?

    GENERAL COSGROVE:
    I don't see how. We will be teaching them proper rifle discipline before they even touch a firearm.

    FEMALE INTERVIEWER:
    But you're equipping them to become violent killers.

    GENERAL COSGROVE:
    Well, Ma'am, you're equipped to be a prostitute, but you're not one, are you?

    The broadcast went silent for 46 seconds and when it

    returned, the interview was over.

    I would pay money to have seen her face…

    Been attributed to a bunch of folks over the years. Still off topic. :)
