$ 50

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 dollars -- and fifty dollars is fifty  dollars".

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." Esther replied, "Morris that  helicopter is
fifty dollars - and fifty dollars is fifty 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 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 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 dollars is fifty  dollars."

Ha ha, I haven't heard that before.  Fifty dollars is only about £25 over here, so getting rid of Esther was quite cheap considering!! ~~~ Pat  http://journals.aol.co.uk/pm71blackfen/ramblings-from-pat/
