Laugh With Lisa: Ten Dollars

Lisa DeMarco brings us another great gag.

Every year, Stumpy and his wife Martha went to the State Fair. And every year Stumpy would say, "Martha, I'd like to ride in that airplane."

And every year, Martha would reply, "I know Stumpy, but that airplane ride costs ten dollars, and ten dollars is ten dollars."

This year, though, when Stumpy and Martha went to the fair Stumpy said, "Martha, I'm 72-years old. If I don't ride the airplane this year, I may never get another chance."

Martha replied, "Stumpy, that there airplane ride cost ten dollars, and ten dollars is ten dollars."

The pilot overheard them and said, "Folks, I'll make you a deal. I'll take the both of you 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 ten dollars - each."

Stumpy and Martha agreed and they went up. The pilot performed all kinds of twists and turns and rolls and dives, but not a word was heard. He even nose dived, pulled up 15 feet above the ground, but still not a word. They landed, 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 replies, "Well, I was gonna say something when Martha fell out, but ten dollars is ten dollars."
