A Perfect Come-back!

One of history's great comeback lines aired on National Public Radio during an interview of a U.S. Marine Corps General hosting a Boy Scout Troop visit to his military base. Female Interviewer: "So, General Reinwald, what are you going to teach these young boys when they visit your base?" General Reinwald: "We'll teach them climbing, canoeing, archery, and shooting." "Shooting! That's a bit irresponsible, isn't it?" "I don't see why. They'll be properly supervised on our rifle range." "Don't you admit that this is a terribly dangerous activity for children?" "I don't see how. We'll teach them proper rifle discipline before they even touch a firearm." "But you're equipping them to become violent killers." "Well, ma'am, you're equipped to be a prostitute, but you aren't one, are you?" The radio went silent and the interview ended.
