The sad tale of Morris and Esther

a joke from Brett at Hoax-Slayer.com, Oct 2006, permalink, _ Joke


Here's the sad tale of 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 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 helicopter, I might never get another chance."


Esther replied "Morris that helicopter ride is 50 dollars, and 50 dollars is 50 dollars."


The pilot over heard 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 maneuver, but not a word was heard. He did his dare 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, I was going to say something when Esther fell out, but "50 dollars is 50 dollars."
