This is one of the best comeback lines of all time. It is a portion of ABC (Australia) 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 radio went silent and the interview ended.

Though not as good, this is is 100% true - I was there!


Female reporter: So what position do you hold?


Before my colleague could answer, another colleague, sitting close by, interjected : What position would you like?


The interview was terminated.
