people were clinging precariously to a wildly swinging rope
suspended from a crumbling outcropping on Mount Everest.
Ten were blonde, one was a brunette.
As a group they decided that one of the party should let
go. If that didn't happen, the rope would break and everyone
would perish. For an agonizing few moments no one volunteered.
Finally the brunette gave a truly touching speech saying
she would sacrifice herself to save the lives of the others.
The blondes applauded.
