Morris and his wife Esther went to the Army show every year,
And every year Morris would say, "Esther, I 'd like to ride in that
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 show, and Morris said,
"Esther, I'm 85 years old. If I don't ride in that helicopter this year, I might never get another chance."
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."
