    Default GENERAL COSGROVE'S ANSWER

    For those that don't know him, Major General Peter Cosgrove is an Australian of very high standing.

    This is 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 broadcast went silent for 46 seconds and when it returned, the interview was over.
    I would pay money to have seen her face…
    I bet it would have made lemon juice look like honey.
    Overkill is underestimated!

    It's actually not true and Cosgrove never said it, but it's been circulating the internet attributed to him for some years. Regardless, it's a great line!
