    Default Funny Aussie Interview

    I got this email this morning and couldn't help but share it. Enjoy!

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

    General Cosgrove was interviewed on the radio recently.
    Please follow 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 radiocastwent silent for 46 seconds and when it returned, this interview was over.

    That was Beautiful.

    I don't know how some people can go through life without walking in front of a car or tripping while picking their nose with scissors when all they have at their disposal is the level of intellect that could crank out such dim and misguided logic.

    Seen this before, I would like to see it on billboards, newspapers, everywhere....so very true. Thanks for bringing it back to the forefront!

    It, without really coming out and saying it, states the one folly in all of the anti-guns arguements. We are all (everyone on the planet) equipped to do violence....we choose not to. Simple as that.

    I originally heard this about 10-12 yrs ago as it being an American Marine Corps General and the woman was a PBR reporter.

    I recall it being a fake, however the point it makes is clear. It applies deductive reasoning turned back on the reporter. Simple and effective logic that highlights the idiocy of assumptions. I still like reading it...
    It takes only seconds to call the police, waiting for them to arrive could take the rest of your life...
