Native English speakers, could you please help me with these issues?
1. Is this sentence correct, and is this a standard way of expressing oneself:
a) "Poking fun at the elderly is the HEIGHT of rudenss."
2. And is the following sentence correct, and does it mean the same as before:
a) "Poking fun at the elderly is the CULMIINATION of rudenss."
3. would it be correct to say just:
Poking fun at the elderly is the UTMOST FORM OF of rudenss."

'height of rudeness' is an idiom; the other variations aren't so they don't really work.
Culmination most people would recognise as the gradual progression towards a high point which doesn't quite fit the context.
