Capt of the spyglass Potlicker club!
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 airplane".
Esther always replied, "I know Morris, but that airplane ride is 50 dollars and 50 dollars is 50 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 airplane, I might never get another chance."
Esther replied, "Morris that airplane ride is 50 dollars and 50 dollars 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 if you say one word, it's 50 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 -- 50 dollars is 50 dollars."
