    For those that don't know him, Major General Peter Cosgrove is an 'Australian treasure!' General Cosgrove was interviewed on the radio recently. You'll love his reply to the lady who interviewed him concerning guns and children. It is a portion of an ABC 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 radio went silent and the interview ended.

    Agreed. True or not, it's still funny.

    Now when I get an email forwarded to me and two dozen other people about politics I very often look them up to the best of my ability and always end up finding out they aren't true. Makes me sick.
