Old Joke #36


This one made me cackle. Loudly.

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 dollars and 50 dollars is 50 dollars".

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 dollars and 50 dollars is 50 dollars".

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 dollars."

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, "By golly, 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 dollars is 50 dollars."

  7. This is great! One good joke deserves another:

    A Mormon was seated next to an Irishman on a flight from London. After the plane was airborne, drink orders were taken.

    The Irishman asked for a whiskey, which was promptly brought and placed before him.

    The flight attendant then asked the Mormon if he would like a drink.

    He replied in disgust, "I'd rather be savagely raped by a dozen whores than let liquor touch my Godly lips."

    The Irishman then handed his drink back to the attendant and said, "Me, too. I didn't know we had a choice."
