A Comeback Line

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
This is one of the best comeback lines of all time. It is a portion of a National Public Radio (NPR) interview between a female broadcaster and USMarine 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, you're equipped to be a prostitute, but you're not one, are you?

The radio went silent and the interview ended.

I still like the one Winston Churchill used when an old dowager accused him of being sauced...

DOWAGER: Mr Churchill, you are drunk!

CHURCHILL: Madam, you are ugly. You are very ugly. In the morning, I shall be sober.

Winston had a few good ones.

I remember another one of his. He was at a dinner party, and this attractive, titled lady was sitting beside him.

Winston: Madam, would you sleep with me for $10,000? (OK, he said pounds but I guess you'll understand dollars better. In those days $10,000 was a lot of money, probably over $1,000,000 today)

Lady: (after thinking for a minute) Yes, I would.

Winston: Would you sleep with me for $1?

Lady: Mr Churchill, what sort of a woman do you think I am?

Winston: We have already established what sort of woman you are, now we are trying to agree on the price.
