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 may feel about gun laws you have to love this! This is one of the best comeback lines of all time. In a portion of an ABC radio interview between a female reporter 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 radio went silent for some seconds and when it returned, the interview was over.

The first time I heard this, it was some retired Marine officer, about six or seven years ago. It has been making the rounds of the urban myth circuit for a long time, along with the tales of Mr. Rogers having been a sniper in Nam and Captain Kangaroo and Lee Marvin kicking ass on Iwo Jima.


still its pretty funny :D
