Mema's Favorite Senior Quest joke
Sometimes, during morning reflections, we run out of Great Issues to talk about, and turn to other matters. Today, Mema remembered her favorite joke from Senior Quest magazine, one passed on to her by Cousin Andi Chelf.
Ten Dollars is Ten Dollars
From Andi Chelf
Fred and his wife Edna went to the state fair every year. Every year Fred would say, "Edna, I'd like to ride in that there airplane."
And every year Edna would say, "I know, Fred, but that airplane ride costs ten dollars, and ten dollars is ten dollars."
One year Fred and Edna went to the fair and Fred said, "Edna, I'm 71 years old. if I don't ride that airplane this year, I may never get another chance."
Edna replied, "Fred, that ther airplane ride costs ten dollars, and ten dollars is ten dollars."
The pilot overheard them and said "Folks, I'll make you a deal. I'll take you both up 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 ten dollars.
Fred and Edna agreed and up they go.
The pilot does all kinds of twist and turns, rolls and dives, but not a word is heard.
He does all his tricks over again, but still not a word.
They land and the pilot turns to Fred, "By golly, I did everything I could think of to get you to yell out, but you didn't."
Fred replied, "Well, I was going to say something when Edna fell out, but ten dollars is ten dollars."
