The funniest things...  
From kittieluv13's journal:

This is one of the best comeback lines of all time. It is a portion of
National Public Radio (NPR) interview between a female broadcaster and
US Marine 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.

Things like this remind me of Hood's marine SO who had a wonderful view of the other branches of the military.
Feeling like: hilarity

I don't care. It's still beautiful.

Urban Legend Fu
I read that, and while I understand that what I have posted is an urban legend it is still hilarious. Every once in a while the trivial and false provide the most amusement value for the time spent.

And well, I can't help find that 'interview' appropriate, and reminiscent of a Marine I know who called the Coast Guard the wet boy scouts and had similar sentiments for the rest of the armed forces.
