General Sir Peter John Cosgrove , AK, MC (born 28 July 1947) is a retired senior Australian Army officer and the 26th and current Governor-General of Australia

He was sworn in on 28 March 2014, and made a Knight of the

Order of Australia the same day

General Cosgrove was interviewed on TV by Leigh Sales from the ABC.

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

Regardless of how you feel about gun laws you have to love this!

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

This is a portion of an ABC interview between a female journalist Leigh Sales 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 broadcast went silent for 46 seconds and when it returned, the interview was over .


Technically, working for ABC and selling fake news makes her a high priced call girl.

That’s hilarious!..

Yes it is…but I’ve heard the same theme put into a different story regarding a game warden in the process of arresting a woman for fishing without a license.

Seems she and her husband were vacationing at their cabin on the banks of a beautiful small lake. The husband was napping after a full morning of fishing alone in their small boat and planned to do some more fishing later in the day…so he left his rods, tackle box and such in the boat.

The wife takes the boat to the middle of the lake and kicks back to get some sun as she reads a love story about amorous men who don’t go fishing.

A young game warden paddles up quietly and interrupts her with threats of arrest after finding that she has no license.

She denies fishing and says she has no plans to do anything but read her book.

The warden says that she’s got all the equipment needed to fish so that’s proof enough for him.

She says she’ll accuse him of raping her if he gives her a citation.

He laughs.

She says “By your own logic, you’ve got the equipment, you must be guilty. We’ll just have to see what the jury says.”

He says, “Have a nice day, ma’am.” …and paddles away.
