No Media Bias?

I found the following story over at Military-Quotes and couldn't resist the temptation of sharing it with you. It is not a true story but one that I could very easily imagine some military officer saying to a reporter. It begins as a interview of what some boys will do upon visiting a military installation. Hope it starts your day off with a big smile.

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? "

Have a good day all.
By the way, check out the comments. BB has the ladies version of this little tale.

Heh.."We're going to teach them climbing, canoeing, archery, and shooting." ..I was a kid once: ALL those things are dangerous!
..according to my Mom, who included hopping freight trains, running across river ice and throwing rocks at big kids.

Ever the curious one, I checked the background of the illustrious
General Reinwald. The amusing tale started in Wales in 1997 and
the good general's name was added in 1999. Your female readers may
enjoy the inverse tale:
"...A couple went on vacation to a fishing resort up north. The husband liked to fish at
the crack of dawn; the wife preferred to read. One morning the husband returned after several hours of fishing and decided to take a short nap. The wife decided to take the boat out. She was not familiar with the lake so she rowed out, anchored the boat, and started reading her book.

Along comes the sheriff in his boat, pulls up alongside and says, "Good morning, Ma'am. What are you doing?"
"Reading my book," she replies as she thinks to herself, "Is this guy blind or what?"
"You're in a restricted fishing area," he informs her.
"But, Officer, I'm not fishing. Can't you see that?"
"But you have all this equipment, Ma'am. I'll have to take you in and write you up."
"If you do that, I will charge you with rape," snaps the irate woman.
"I didn't even touch you," grouses the sheriff.
"Yes, that's true ... but you have all the equipment ..."
....I suspect she was Mrs. Reinwalt. :)
