Marine Candor

I know this has made a few rounds, but I thought I would post it here :)

This is one of the best comeback lines of all time. It is a portion of National Public Radio (NPR) interview between an opinionated 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 then went completely silent and the interview abruptly ended.
