    Ed and his wife Norma go to the state fair every year,
    And every year Ed would say,
    " Norma, I'd like to ride in that helicopter "
    Norma always replied,
    " I know Ed , but that helicopter ride is fifty bucks, and fifty bucks is fifty bucks! "
    One year Ed and Norma went to the fair, and Ed said,
    " Norma, I'm 75 years old. If I don't ride that helicopter, I might never get another chance"
    To this, Norma replied,
    " Ed, 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."
    Ed and Norma 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 Ed and said,
    "By golly, I did everything I could to get you to yell out, but you didn't. I'm impressed! "
    Ed replied,
    " Well, to tell you the truth
    I almost said something when Norma fell out,
    But you know, fifty bucks is fifty bucks! "

    The following is an actual letter that was sent to a bank by a 96-year-old woman. The bank manager thought it amusing enough to have it published in the New York Times.

    To whom it may concern,

    I am writing to thank you for bouncing my check with which I endeavored to pay my plumber last month. By my calculations, three nanoseconds must have elapsed between his depositing the check and the arrival in my account of the funds needed to honor it. I refer, of course, to the automatic monthly transfer of funds from my modest savings account, an arrangement which, I admit, has been in place for only thirty-one years.

    You are to be commended for seizing that brief window of opportunity, and also for debiting my account $30 by way of penalty for the inconvenience ca
