Priceless!

Had to post this – tis from a debate on the Nation States message board concerning gun control – made me break out in a hearty laugh…

~MRDA~


This is one of the best comeback lines of all time. It is a portion of National Public Radio (NPR) interview between a female broadcaster and US Marine Corps General Reinwald who was about to sponsor a Boy Scout Troop visiting his military installation.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER: So, General Reinwald, what things are you going to teach these young boys when they visit your base?

GENERAL REINWALD: We’re going to teach them climbing, canoeing, archery, and shooting.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER: Shooting! That’s a bit irresponsible, isn’t it?

GENERAL REINWALD: 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 REINWALD: 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 REINWALD: Well, you’re equipped to be a prostitute, but you’re not one, are you?

The radio went silent and the interview ended.

    Ha! National Public Radio is a disgrace. The “news” they have is with a very liberal slant, and they play a bunch of what is known as folk music. Once I was just flipping through some stations and came across a song that sounded like a folk song (as in, very simple tune, little to no background, possibly a guitar but nothing else) and the guy was singing about the “middle class” keeping the “lower class” down. I wish I remembered the name of the song, but it was a few years ago. I probably wrote it on a scrap of paper embedded in a desk drawer somewhere. Actually, it was so bad I *don’t* want to hear it again!
    But anyway, I’m glad the interviewee gave the response that he did!

    Snopes has the original version, it apparently orginated in Wales in 1997.
