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 50 dollars and 50 dollars is 50 dollars. One year Esther and Morris went to the fair and Morrris said, "Esther, I'm 85 years old. If I don't ride that helicopter now I may never get another chance." Esther replied, "Morris, that helicopter ride is 50 dollars and 50 dolars is 50 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 say 1 word amd it's 50 dollars". Morris and Esther agreed and up they went. The pilot did all kinds of fancy manoeuvers, but not a word did he hear. He did his dare-devil 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 and I'm impressed." Morris replied, "Well, I was going to say something when Esther fell out but 50 dollars is 50 dollars".

Oh, that is so funny. I feel I should feel badly for the lady but she can't complain, her husband was at least listening to her - one of those things we women tend to complain about alot, men not listening to us :)
