Stumpy and his wife Martha went to the state fair every year. Every year
Stumpy would say, "Martha, I'd like to ride in that there airplane."
And every year Martha would say, "I know Stumpy, but that airplane ride
costs fifty dollars, and fifty dollars is fifty dollars."

One year Stumpy and Martha went to the fair and Stumpy said, "Martha,
I'm 71 years old. If I don't ride that airplane this year I may never
get another chance." Martha replied, "Stumpy that there airplane ride
costs fifty dollars, and fifty dollars is fifty dollars."

The pilot overheard them and said, "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, I won't charge you, but if you say one word it's
fifty dollars."

Stumpy and Martha agreed and up they go. The pilot does all kinds of
twists and turns, rolls and dives, but not a word is heard. He does all
his tricks over again, but still not a word.

They land and the pilot turns to Stumpy, "By golly, I did everything I
could think of to get you to yell out, but you didn't."

Stumpy replied, "Well, I was gonna say something when Martha fell out,
but fifty dollars is fifty dollars."
