I’m 37. I’m not old.

Today is my birthday, and being 37, I reminded myself of this lovely bit from the Holy Grail.

Arthur: Old woman!
Dennis: Man.
Arthur: Man, sorry.
Dennis: I’m 37.
Arthur: What?
Dennis: I’m 37. I’m not old.
Arthur: I did apologize about the “old woman,” but from behind you looked, well…
Dennis: What I object to is that you automatically treat me like an inferior.
Arthur: Well, I am king.
Dennis: Oh, king, eh? And how’d you get that? By exploiting the workers! By hanging on to outdated imperialist dogma which perpetuates the economic and social differences in our society.
