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 a ride in that helicopter". Esther replied,"I know Morris but that helicopter ride is $50, and $50 is $50.
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 ride s $50, and $50 is $50!
The pilot overheard the couple and said, "Folks I'll make you a deal. I'll take both of you for a ride. If you can stay quiet the entire ride and not say a word, i'll not charge you! But, if you say one word it's $50.
Morris and Esther agreed, and up they went. The pilot did all sorts 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 and said,"By golly, I did everything I could to get you to yell out, but you didn't! I'm impressed!"
Morris said "Well to tell you the truth, I almost said something when Esther fell out, but you know $50 is $50!"
