Fifty Bucks is Fifty Bucks

Casey sent this to me as a forward the other day. I couldn’t help but share it. I can promise you that sent he shared this, he’s quoted “50 bucks is 50 bucks” on a couple of occasions.

Bill & Blanche having a moment
Bill and his wife Blanche went to the state fair every year,

And every year Bill would say,

” Blanche, I’d like to ride in that helicopter “

Blanche always replied,

” I know, Bill, but that helicopter ride is fifty bucks,

and fifty bucks is fifty bucks! “

One year Bill and Blanche went to the fair, and Bill said,

” Blanche, I’m 75 years old.

If I don’t ride that helicopter, I might never get another chance “

To this, Blanche replied,

” Bill that helicopter ride is fifty bucks, and fifty bucks is fifty bucks “

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 don’t say a word I won’t charge you a penny!

But if you say one word it’s fifty dollars. “

Bill and Blanche agreed and up they went.

The pilot did all kinds of fancy maneuvers, but not a word was heard.

He did his daredevil tricks,

but still not a word…

When they landed, the pilot turned to Bill and said,

” By golly , I did everything I could to get you to yell out, but you didn’t.

I’m impressed! “

Bill replied,

” Well, to tell you the truth

I almost said something when Blanche fell out,

but you know,

Fifty bucks is fifty bucks! “
