[again, not mine, but hilarious. let me stress, as the first line says, this is undocumented and quite possibly an urban legend. it's still hilarious, and makes a great point.]
We understand this may be an urban myth. We like it though. Feel free to use this comeback at any time. It's precious.
I was listening to the radio the other day, and I heard one of the all-time best comeback lines in my life. Note: This is an exact replication of National Public Radio (NPR) interview between a female broadcaster, and US Army 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, you're equipped to be a prostitute, but you're not one, are you?”
The radio went silent and the interview ended. And all I could think was, “Go Army!”
