A Price of a Helicopter Ride ~ humour

Jallaluddin and his wife Maasshalah went to the village fair every year, and every year Jallaluddin would say,” Maasshalah, I’d like to ride in that helicopter."

Maasshalah always replied, "I know Jallaluddin, but that helicopter ride is 50 dollars and 50 dollars is 50 dollars."

One year Maasshalah and Jallaluddin went to the fair, and Jallaluddin said "Maasshalah I’m 85 years old. If I don't ride that helicopter, I might never get another chance.”

Maasshalah replied, "Jallaluddin that helicopter is 50 dollars and 50 dollars is 50 dollars."

The pilot overheard the couple and said, "Brother and sister 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 not say a word I won't charge you! but if you say one word, it's 50 dollars."

Jallaluddin and Maasshalah agreed and up they went.

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

He did his dare devil tricks over and over again, but still not a word.

When they landed, the pilot turned to Jallaluddin and said, "Ajeeb! Ajeeb!, I did everything I could to get you to yell out, but you didn't. I’m very, very impressed!"

Jallaluddin replied, "Well I almost said something when the old lady fell out, but, you know, 50 dollars is 50 dollars!"
