Funny Story: Kevin wants to ride the helicopter at the fair

Reading funny stories is one of my favorite pastimes. If there is anything that I like better than finding a new joke, it is sharing it with my friends and family. 

It doesn’t matter how difficult my day was, as soon as I get my hands on a funny story, I am in a good mood again. I came across the hilarious story below earlier today – check it out!

Kevin and his wife Karen, a couple from a small town in rural Texas, attended the state fair every year. And every time they got there, Kevin would say:

“Karen, I’d love to ride in that helicopter”.

But Karen always replied,

“I know Kevin, but that helicopter ride is fifty bucks, and fifty bucks is fifty bucks”.

Wanted to ride the helicopter

This answer became quite common. Until the year Kevin and Karen went to the fair, and Kevin finally said:

“Karen, I’m 85 years old. If I don’t ride that helicopter now, I might never get another chance”.

To this, Karen, as usual, replied:

“Kevin, a helicopter ride is fifty bucks, and fifty bucks is fifty bucks”.

This time, however, the pilot overheard the couple and told them:

“Folks, I’ll make you a deal. I’ll take the both of you out for a spin. And if you can stay quiet for the entire ride without saying a single word I won’t charge you! But if you say one word then you have to pay the fifty dollars.”

Kevin and Karen agreed and up they went.

“Fifty bucks is fifty bucks”

The pilot did all kinds of maneuvers, but not a word came out of the couple. He did his daredevil tricks over and over again, but still not a word…

When they landed, the pilot, defeated, turned to Kevin and said:

“Well… I’ll be damned! I did everything I could to get you to scream, but you didn’t. Color me impressed!”

Kevin replied:

“Well, to tell you the truth, I almost said something when Karen fell off, but as she always says, Fifty bucks is fifty bucks!”
