The One That Got Away

Matt and his wife lived in the country. Matt was very stingy and hated spending money. One day a fair came to the nearby town.

“Let’s go to the fair, Matt,” his wife said, “We haven’t been anywhere for a long time.”

Matt thought about this for a while. He knew he would have to spend money at the fair. At last he said, “all right, but I’m not going to spend much money. We’ll look at things, but we won’t buy anything.”

They went to the fair and looked at all the things to buy. There were many things Matt’s wife wanted to buy, but he would not let her spend any money. Then, in a nearby field, they saw a small, old looking airplane.
“Fun flight!” the notice said, “$20 for 10 minutes.”

Matt had never been in an airplane and he wanted to go on a fun flight. However, he didn’t want to have to pay for his wife, as well.

 
airplane, wife, joke

“I’ve only got $20,” he told the pilot. “Can my wife come with me for free?”

The pilot wasn’t selling many tickets. So he said, “I’ll make a bargain with you. If both of you can hold from screaming or shouting the whole flight, you won’t have to pay for her.”

Matt agreed, and got into the small airplane with his wife.

The pilot took off and made his airplane do all kinds of things, up and down and all around, tricks, fast turns, everything he could to scare them. But they never uttered a word.

Eventually, the pilot said, “O.K., we’ll land now. None of you made a sound so your can have her ride for free.”

“Thank you,” Matt said. “Wasn’t easy, especially when she fell out.”

In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
