Helicoptor ride!

Ed and his wife Norma go to the State Fair every year,

And every year Ed would say,

" Norma, I'd like to ride in that helicopter "

Norma always replied,
" I know Ed , but that helicopter ride is fifty bucks,
And fifty bucks is fifty bucks! "

One year Ed and Norma went to the fair, and Ed said,

" Norma, I'm 75 years old.
If I don't ride that helicopter, I might never get another chance"

To this, Norma replied,
" Ed, 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 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 even ONE word it's fifty dollars." 

Ed and Norma agreed and up they went. 

The pilot did all kinds of fancy manoeuvrings, 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 Ed and said, 

" By golly, I did everything I could to get you to yell out, but you didn't. I'm impressed! "

Ed replied, 
" Well, to tell you the truth...
I almost said something when Norma fell out of the helicopter, 
But you know,  Fifty bucks is fifty bucks!"
