FW: THE BEST Put Down LINE EVER

THE BEST Put Down LINE EVER
> 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. 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 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.

I leave it to other "posters" to check out the veractiy but I call a big whooping b.s.

Look, I lived downundah for over 7 years(a long time ago), and this joke is as old as the hills. I srsly doubt that this Gen. Cosgrove dude said this on the ABC (sort of like PBS in the USA). It is a kind of right wing fantasy, Aussie style (and/or some idiot up here just "Aussiefied" this joke).

And, gee, I am just so freaking finding this outright slur on all women as a hugely giant laff riot.

So lessee: we get to miss out on racism, but we get the di-fecta (is that a word) of guns and blatant sexism. Whoopeeeee.

As per usual, though, this joke gets a Z (pronounced "zed" in honour of good Aussies everywhere) minus for bah-roar-ingness.

ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

Old as the hills and dull as toast. Don't start singing "Waltzing Matilda" and bending an elbow for a schooner of VB until ya gots something rully funny, mate.

You need a sexism tag for RWFs like these.

Yes, a fake several times over, unsurprisingly:

My word, that's an old joke. We'll know we have gender equality when the punch line becomes, "Well, sir, you're equipped to be a rapist, but you're not one, are you?"

Fake fa-fake fake fake!

Clearly fake, but these, uh, people never let us down, do they?

"Best put down line, ever"

Like: you are so clever... NOT.

Ugh.

but yes: very old & not funny ever.

Judging by the goofy hat and pedosmile, I'm not sure exactly what kind of supervision this guy (supposedly) was planning on giving the kids.

Cath said...

Yeah, it's old as the hills, and fake. It's also kind of harsh on Cosgrove, who seems to be a decent chap.

Do wingtards ever tell the truth?

Just give me a single example.

Snarla, there is exactly such a joke. I think it involves a woman being fined for fishing without a license, because she was out on a boat that had fishing equipment in it (although she was just boating). She then accuses the (male) parks guy of rape, since he has a penis ha ha ha.
