For those that donít know him, Major General Peter Cosgrove is an Australian treasure General Cosgrove was interviewed on the radio recently.
Youíll love his reply to the lady who interviewed him concerning guns and children. Regardless of how you feel about gun laws you gotta love this! This is one of the best comeback lines of all time. It is a portion of an ABC 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:
Weíre going to teach them climbing, canoeing, archery and shooting.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER:
Shooting! Thatís a bit irresponsible, isnít it?

GENERAL COSGROVE:
I donít see why, theyíll be properly supervised on the rifle range.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER:
Donít you admit that this is a terribly dangerous activity to be teaching children?

GENERAL COSGROVE:
I donít see how. We will be teaching them proper rifle discipline before they even touch a firearm.!

FEMALE INTERVIEWER:
But youíre equipping them to become violent killers.

GENERAL COSGROVE:
Well, Maíam, youíre equipped to be a prostitute, but youíre not one, are you?

The radio went silent and the interview ended

This has been running since at least 2007, different names same story...But its a good one.
