After many years of training, Luke Bakker went down to the astronaut office to sign up.
“You’re too short,” they told him. “Much too short.”
“You don’t know what you’re talking about,” he argued. “I’m plenty tall.”
The astronaut people pointed to a sign on the wall that clearly stated the necessary height requirements to join. They also suggested that Luke return when he was a little older.
“Eight is too young,” was the final word.
