Fifty Dollars is Fifty Dollars

Morris and his wife Esther went to the state fair every year, and 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 fifty dollars, and fifty dollars is fifty dollars"

One year Esther and Morris went to the fair, and Morris said: -

"Esther, I'm 85 years old. If I don't ride that helicopter, I might never get another chance."

To this, Esther replied: -

"Morris that helicopter is fifty dollars,and fifty dollars is fifty dollars."

The pilot overheard the couple and said: -

"Folks I'll make you a deal. I'll take the both of you for a ride. If you can stay quiet for the entire ride and not say a word, I won't charge you! But if you say one word, it's fifty dollars."

Morris and Esther 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 to Morris and said: -

"By golly, I did everything I could to get you to Yell out, but you didn't. I'm impressed!"

Morris replied: -

"Well, to tell you the truth, I almost said something when Esther fell out, but you know, fifty dollars is fifty dollars." :laugh
