Bill and his wife Blanche go to the Yorkshire Show every year, and every year Bill would say, " Blanche, I'd like to ride in that there 'elicopter "
Blanche always replied, " I know Bill, but that 'elicopter ride is twenty quid, and twenty quid is twenty quid!"
One year Bill and Blanche went to the fair, and Bill said, " Blanche, I'm 75 years old. If I don't ride that there 'elicopter, I might never get another chance."
To this, Blanche replied, " Bill that 'elicopter ride is twenty quid, and twenty quid is twenty quid."
The pilot overheard the couple and said, " 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 twenty quid."
Bill and Blanche agreed and up they went.
The pilot did all kinds of fancy manoeuvres, 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 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 t'truth I almost said summat when Blanche fell out, but tha' knows, twenty quid is twenty quid! "
