Larry and Betty went to the State Fair every year and every year Betty would say, "Larry, I'd like to ride in that helicopter"
Larry always replied, "I know Betty, but that helicopter ride is fifty bucks and fifty bucks is fifty bucks."
One year Larry and Betty went to the fair, and Betty said, "Larry, I'm 65 years old. If I don't ride that helicopter, I might never get another chance."
To this, Larry replied, "Betty 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 not say a word I won't charge you a penny! But, if you say one word it's fifty dollars."
Larry and Betty 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 Betty and said, "By golly, I did everything I could to get you to yell out, but you didn't. I'm impressed!"
Betty replied, "Well, to tell you the truth, I almost said something when Larry fell out, But you know . . .
"Fifty bucks is fifty bucks!
