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.
In 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 radiocast went silent for
46 seconds and when it
returned, this interview was
over.

You did notice the forum heading, didn't you? Most jokes aren't true, but are funny.

I did indeed notice and I did love the sentiment expressed and I did laugh for several minutes and I did share the post with many friends.

I also noticed the title you gave to the post!  grin

Many jokes have a truthful inner meaning, even when put out in joke form.
