Telephone Conversation

On the radio the other day, there was one of the all-time best comeback
lines ever. Note: This is an exact replication of National Public Radio
(NPR) interview between a female broadcaster and US Army General Reinwald
who was about to sponsor a Boy Scout Troop visiting his military

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

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 the 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.

Go Army!
