A Humorous Hoax...

This is not real but it is very funny, particularly if you have a sense of humor like mine. Originally, this interview was based on a supposed interview conducted in Wales. It then moved to the US. And it seems it has finally ended up in Australia.

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.

Another good one is this:

A couple went on a fishing vacation at a lake resort. The husband liked to fish and generally did so at first light in the morning. The wife liked to idle away her days reading.

One morning after a good couple of hours fishing the husband returned home and decided to catch a few zzzzzzzs. Although the wife was not familiar with the lake she decided to take the boat out and do some reading while rocking gently with the motion of the water.

So, the wife takes the boat out a short distance and drops anchor. She then proceeds to read her book in peace. After a very short while, up comes the local water coppers and they demand to know what she is doing in this part of the lake as it is a restricted fishing zone.

Somewhat incredulously she states what to her seems the obvious' "I am reading my book!"

Sensing his opportunity the water copper decides to press his advantage and repeat that this is a restricted fishing zone and he would have to write her a ticket because the boat contained all the necessary equipment for fishing. In spite of her protestations that she was not fishing the officer persisted in that the only way was to ticket her.

However, when the water copper insisted on a ticket and without missing a beat the woman suggested to the water copper that if he was to issue the ticket then she would have to charge rape. At this point the water copper starts to protest and says but I have not touched you! But alas responds the woman "yes, but you have all the equipment to do so!"

Moral of the story -- never under estimate a woman, never under estimate her intellect, and under no circumstances engage in an argument with a woman!

They are, aren't they?

Both seem to derive from the same source...

Perhaps not so funny for the politically correct among us, but all the same it highlights someone with a good sense of humor!

Thanks for dropping by!
