*********************************
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 -- and $50 is $50*.
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 is $50 -
- and $50 is $50*.
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*.
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, *Wow, 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 is $50.*
