    Ten Dollars

    Tom and his wife Marg went to the United State Fair every year. Every year Tom said, "Marg, let's go ride the airplane together."

    And every year Marg would say, "I know, Tom, but that airplane ride costs ten dollars, and ten dollars is ten dollars."

    This year Tom and Marg went to the fair.

    Tom said, "Marg, I'm 71 years old. If I don't ride that airplane this year I may never get another chance. I might be dead by the next time the fair comes. Let's go ride the airplane." Marg replied, "Tom , that airplane ride costs ten dollars, and ten dollars is ten dollars."

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

    Tom and Marg agreed. The pilot does all kinds of twists and turns, rolls and dives. He does all his tricks over again, but still not a word.

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

    Tom replied, "Well, I was gonna say something when Marg fell out, but ten dollars is ten dollars."

    十块钱

    汤姆和他太太每年都会去参加年度庆典。每年汤姆都会说:“玛格,我们一起去坐飞机吧。”

    每年玛格都会说:“我知道,汤姆,可是坐飞机要花十块钱,十块钱也是钱。”

    今年汤姆和玛格也去参加年度庆典。

    汤姆说:“玛格,我都71岁了,今年再不坐飞机去玩可能再也没有机会了。下回年度庆典时,搞不好我已经翘辫子了。我们去坐飞机吧。”玛格回答:“汤姆,坐飞机要花十块钱,十块钱也是钱。”

    驾驶员无意中听到他们的谈话,便说:“两位,我和你们做个交易。我带你们两个飞一程,如果你们能全程保持安静,一句话都不说,我就不收你们的钱;但只要你们一开口,就要付十块钱。”

    汤姆和玛格决定接受这项提议。结果驾驶员尽其所能地翻来覆去,一会儿旋转一会儿俯冲,所有花招尽皆出笼,但还是没听到有人说话。

    降落后,驾驶员转头对汤姆说:“我想得出来可以让你们大叫的招数都使过了,结果还是被你们打败。”

    汤姆回答:“其实玛格摔出去的时候我是想开口啦,可是十块钱也是钱。”
