I believe the americans are getting this tricky issue about right - see extract from a radio interview below

Marine Corps General Reinwald was interviewed on the
radio the other day and you have to read his reply to the lady who interviewed him concerning guns and children. This is one of the best comeback lines of all time.

Reinwald was about to sponsor a Boy Scout Troop visiting his military installation:

Superb thanks for that Raffles. Nearly on a par with Churchills famous remarks when accused of being drunk.


Good one Raffles, reminds me of another Marine Corps Officer being interviewed on the subject of the lack of female officers. He was being given a hard time on the fact that men were in complete control of the Military Technology and  that women should be given more of a say. Lady came the reply," Men may be in control of the Technology, but we haven't got a chance when women control  one hundred per cent of the 'Pussy' " !!   Work it ou for yourself. :eek:    


He didn't say "girl thingy"  he said "pu**y!! What is a 'girl thingy' any way??

So what did Churchill say about being drunk then?!!
(Comprehensive, 1970 education)


One evening at a party, Churchill was castigated by a Lady for appearing drunk.  His reply was "and you Madam are ugly, but I shall be sober in the morning!"  :)

BS...don't feel so bad about a comprehensive education, just feel bad about being uneducated.


War Hero
BS obviously has been educated,  but not at school!!

I recon he has to have an NVQ in something...


Not what Churchill said at all. He said I wish I didnt get drunk in the Sarnts Mess because they are all harder than me and can drink more than me and It makes me feel sick anyway. He then went on to explain to the lady about ugly and sober, but most historians sadly have chosen to forget the real message.
