Joke: 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’s 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.”

This year, when they went to the fair, Morris said, “Esther, I’m 85 years old. If I don’t ride that helicopter, I might never get another chance.” To which Esther replied, “Morris, that helicoper ride is fifty dollars, and fifty dollars is fifty dollars.”

The pilot overheard this exchange and said, “Folks, I’ll make you a deal. I’ll take 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 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 everrything 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.”
