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 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”
