Once upon a time in a land far away, hundreds of little tree frogs decided to hold a competition to see who could be the first to climb a high tower in the center of town. As the little frogs engaged in the competition, a large crowd gathered to watch, and began taunting them, shouting, “You won’t make it, it’s too difficult you silly frogs!”
Ten feet or so up the side of the tower some of the frogs dropped off, too tired to continue. The crowd continued to jeer and ridicule the frogs and at twenty feet up about half the frogs had fallen to the ground, only to have to listen to the crowd’s ugly recrimination, “See we told you it is just too difficult!”
At the thirty feet mark, all but one of the frogs had eventually fallen. This one little frog continued to the top of the tower even though the crowd kept jeering and yelling about the impossibility of completing the task. The frog climbed back down and of course all the other frogs gathered around him, wanting to know how he had gotten to the top when none of them had. The questions flew fast and furious and in all the clamour of noise, the little frog finally put his front leg up next to his ear and said, “I’m sorry I can’t hear a word you are saying because I’m deaf!”
