The Best Put Down Line Ever
For those that don't know him, Major General Peter Cosgrove is an 'Australian treasure!'



General Cosgrove was interviewed on the radio recently.
You'll 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:
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.


Got this from Zombie squad. I had to share this with you all please mods take pity upon this pore fool and if this does not belong here or this should be on bts I implore you to move it.

Now you can see why we Aussies like that General so much. He has always spoken very openly, honestly and without needing to be politically correct at all times. It reminds the rest of us of how outgoing and open we used to be.

I remember seeing a transcript of that interview a ways back, but there were no names attached. Now I know. I wish I could buy the good General a drink or three, and one for the interviewer.. as her ego must still be hurting.

Again thx for the lolz

Oh, but nature didn't create children with riffles, as it made women with reproductive organs.

Having fun with such is okay though, but I didn't find it amusing. Although there's nothing wrong with the firearms itself, it's the human that kills with them. But IMO, forcing the children's interests towards weaponry isn't nice thing either.

I may have a laugh though, with the expenses of others of course

LOL I know General Cosgrove, being an aussie I've seen him on the news quite a bit, but as I read the interview I couldn't help but picture Sergeant Hartman from Full Metal Jacket

Sorry to be a joy kill for this thread, but this same topic was put up in April '09.

ATS Thread

Also, from one of the replies in the original thread, this interview never happened.

Sorry right but this HAS to be flagged onto the top page.

We need a little entertainment around here.

That was genius. Comeback King, I love this man.



Edit to add:

Damnit, just followed the other thread and found out it was fake
oh well, still funny.

In that case you had better do away with Hollywood then but I bet my last two cents that you enjoy a movie from time to time.

The first thing that pops up, is this being a hoax....
