Thread: The Best Shut Up LIne Ever

    The Best Shut Up LIne Ever

    For those who don't know him, Major General Peter Cosgrove is an 'Australian treasure!'

    General Cosgrove was interviewed on the radio recently.

    Read his reply to the lady who interviewed him concerning guns and children.

    Regardless of how you feel about gun laws you gotta love this!

    This is one of the best comeback lines of all time.

    It 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.

    So, General Cosgrove, what things are you going to teach these young boys when they visit your base?

    We're going to 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 the rifle range.

    Don't you admit that this is a terribly dangerous activity to be teaching children?

    I don't see how. We will be teaching 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're not one, are you?

    The radiocastwent silent for 46 seconds and when it returned, the interview was over.

    It'd be lovely if it was true, sadly it never really happened.
