Morris and his wife Ester went to the state fair every year.
Every year, Morris would say : “Esther, I’d like to ride in that helicopter.
Esther always replied : “I know, Morris but that helicopter ride is 50 dollars and 50 dollars is 50 dollars.”
A few years later, Ester and Morris went to the fair.
Morris said :” Ester, I am 85 years old. If I don’t ride that helicopter now, I might never get another chance.”
Esther replied : ” Morris, that helicopter ride is 50 dollars and 50 dollars is 50 dollars.”
The pilot overheard the couple.
He said : “Folks, I’ll make you a deal. I’ll take the both of you for a ride.
If you can stay quiet the entire ride and not say a word, I won’t charge you!
But if you say one word, it’s 50 dollars.”
Morris and Ester agreed…and up they went.
The pilot did all kinds of fancy manoeuvres but not a word was heard.
He did his daredevil tricks over and over again, but still not a word.
When they landed, the pilot turned and said : By golly, I did everything I could to get you to yell out but you didn’t. I’m impressed.”
Ester replied : “Well, I was going to say something when Morris fell out, but 50 dollars is 50 dollars.
