50 Dollars is 50 Dollars

MORRIS AND HIS WIFE ESTHER 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, ESTHER AND MORRIS WENT TO THE FAIR. MORRIS SAID, “ESTHER, I’M 85 YEARS OLD. IF I DON’T RIDE THAT HELICOPTER NOW, I MIGHT NEVER GET ANOTHER CHANCE.”

ESTHER REPLIED, “MORRIS, THAT HELICOPTER 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 FOR 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 ESTHER AGREED — AND UP THEY WENT. THE PILOT DID ALL KINDS OF FANCY MANEUVERS. 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. HE SAID, “BY GOLLY, I DID EVERYTHING I COULD TO GET YOU TO YELL OUT, BUT YOU DIDN’T. I’M IMPRESSED!”

MORRIS REPLIED, “WELL, I WAS GOING TO SAY SOMETHING WHEN ESTHER FELL OUT, BUT 50 DOLLARS IS 50 DOLLARS.”
