Bob and his wife, Carol,
faithfully attend their parish's annual festival every year where a local pilot would offer helicopter rides for a $50 donation to the parish building fund. And every year Bob would say, "Carol, I'd really like to ride in that helicopter." Carol always replied, "I know, Bob, but that helicopter ride is fifty dollars, and fifty dollars is still fifty dollars.
After several years of this, Bob said, "Carol, I'm 85 years old. If I don't ride that helicopter now, I might never get another chance." But Carol simply replied, "Bob, fifty dollars is still fifty dollars."
The pilot, a practical joker, overhears the discussion and says, "Folks, I'll make you a deal. I'll take the both of you for a ride. If you don't say a word for the whole ride, it won't cost you a penny! But if you say one word it's fifty dollars."
So up they went. The pilot made all kinds of fancy maneuvers, but not a word was heard from the back seat. He did daredevil tricks, but there wasn't a peep. As he landed, the pilot looked in the mirror and said, "Boy, I did everything I could to get you to say something, but you didn't, I'm impressed!"
Bob replied, "Well, to tell you the truth, I almost yelled when Carol fell out, but you know, fifty dollars is still fifty dollars!"
During a Reconciliation service before an upcoming wedding,
the mother of the bride confessed to the priest that she just learned that the groom's mother had bought the exact same dress she had for the wedding.
"I'm so mad I could just kill her. That dress cost me a fortune," the woman told the priest. But then she said, "Don't worry, Father. I don't really mean that. I'll just go and buy another dress to wear to the ceremony."
"Can you return the expensive dress," the priest asked, "and get your money back?"
"Who said I would return it?" said the woman. "I'll just wear it to the rehearsal dinner."
