The Mountain Climber That Was Too Old

Two mountain climbers stand at the base of a very tall mountain. One mountain climber is very young and handsome, the other is old and whitered. The mountain is far taller than either of them, even if one were to stand on the other's shoulder.

"You are too old to climb that mountain," says the young climber as he adjusts the collar of his red turtleneck shirt.

"I am not," says the old one.

"Uh huh."

"Am not. I can climb. Like that one time with Mount Everest."

"That was when you weren't too old," says the young climber. "Now you're too old."

"Fine, I'm too old. I'm going to climb it anyways."

And he fell and died.
