Ten dollars is ten dollars

Filled under:

Ten dollars is ten dollars
Stumpy Grinder and his wife Martha were from Portland,Maine. Every year they went to the Portland Fair and every year Stumpy said, “Ya know, Martha, I’d like to get a ride in that airplane.” And every year, Martha would say “I know, Stumpy, but that airplane ride costs ten dollars .. and ten dollars is ten dollars.”
So one year Stumpy says, “Martha, I’m 71 years old, and if I don’t go this time I may never go.” Martha replies, “Stumpy, that there airplane ride is ten dollars … and ten dollars is ten dollars.”
So the pilot overhears then and says, “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 ONE WORD, then I won’t charge you. But just ONE WORD and it’s ten dollars.”
They agree and up they go… the pilot does all kinds of twists and turns, rolls and dives, but not a word is heard. He does it one more time, and there is still no word… so he lands.
He turns to Stumpy as they come to a stop and says, “By golly, I did everything I could think of to get you to holler out, but you didn’t.”
And Stumpy replies “Well, I was gonna say something when Martha fell out … but ten dollars is ten dollars.”
