Morris and Esther

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  quid, and fifty quid is fifty quid."

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 quid, and  fifty quid is fifty quid."

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 quid."

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 quid is fifty quid."
