Helicopter Ride

Bill  and his wife Blanche went to the state fair every year,

And  every year Bill would say,
"  Blanche, I'd like to ride in that helicopter  "
Blanche always replied,
"  I know, Bill, but that helicopter ride is fifty bucks,
and  fifty bucks is fifty bucks! "

One year Bill and  Blanche went to the fair, and Bill said,
"  Blanche, I'm 75 years old.
If  I don't ride that helicopter, I might never get another chance  "
 To this, Blanche replied,

"  Bill that helicopter ride is fifty bucks, and fifty bucks is fifty  bucks "

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 don't say a word I  won't charge you a penny!
But  if you say one word it's fifty dollars. "
Bill and  Blanche agreed and up they went.
The  pilot did all kinds of fancy maneuvers, but not a word was  heard.
He  did his daredevil tricks,
but  still not a word...

When  they landed, the pilot turned to Bill and said,
"  By golly , I did everything I could to get you to yell out, but  you didn't.
I'm  impressed! "

Bill replied,
Well, to tell you the truth I almost said something  when Blanche fell out,

but  you know, Fifty  bucks is fifty bucks! "
