Urban Myth or True Story?

#1
Had an email sent round work today - I don't know if it's true or just an urban Myth. If it's true, then it's a cracking put-down.

This is one of the best comeback lines of all time. It is a portion of National Public Radio (NPR) interview between
a 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, Ma'am, you're equipped to be a prostitute, but you're not one, are you?

The radio went silent and the interview ended. You just gotta love the Marines!

I read a similar story once about a radical feminist saying all men are potential rapists, she got the same reply as the one above.

Don't believe he'd have the intellectual capacity to be that witty.

Good story nevertheless. :D
