Travel at 60 Daily Joke: A man wants to ride in a helicopter

Written by

Keith and his wife Sheila go to the state fair every year, and every year Keith says: “Sheila, I’d like to ride in that helicopter”.

Sheila always replies: “I know Keith, but that helicopter ride is fifty dollars. And fifty dollars is fifty dollars!”

One year Sheila and Keith are at the fair, when Keith turns to his wife and says: “Sheila my love, I’m 85 years old. If I don’t ride that helicopter now, I might never get another chance.”

To this, she replies: “Keith that helicopter ride is still fifty dollars, and fifty dollars is fifty dollars!”

However, the pilot overhears the couple and says: “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.”

Keith and Sheila agree and up they go. The pilot does all kinds of fancy manoeuvres, but not a word is said. He does his daredevil tricks over and over again, but still not a word.

When they land, the pilot turns to Keith and says: “By golly, I did everything I could to get you to yell out, but you didn’t. I’m impressed!”

Keith replies: “Well, to tell you the truth, I almost said something when Sheila fell out. But, you know, fifty dollars is fifty dollars!”
