Morris and His Wife Esther Went to the State Fair Every Year.
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."
A Few Years Later, Esther and Morris Went to the Fair.
Morris Said, "Esther, I'm 85 Years Old. If I Don't Ride That Helicopter Now, I Might Never Get Another Chance."
Esther Replied, "Morris, That Helicopter Ride Is 50 Dollars and 50 Dollars Is 50 Dollars."
The Pilot Overheard the Couple. He 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. He Said, "By Golly, I Did Everything g I Could to Get You to Yell Out, But You Didn't. I'm Impressed!"
Morris Replied, "Well, I Was Going to Say Something When Esther Fell Out, But 50 Dollars Is 50 Dollars!"

“I know that you are interested and that you believe, and I know that the world, too, is interested, though they will not believe for many years; yes, for many ages, since they cannot understand. Earth men have not yet progressed to a point where they can comprehend the things that I have written.”
