A Scotsman and his wife were out driving one day and came upon a sign at a
local airport: "Airplane rides: $10". Out of curiosity, they went up to the
pilot, and he invited them to ride in his plane for $10. But the Scotsman
declined. The pilot, being somewhat of a huckster said: "I will give you the
ride free, if you sit back there and say nothing during my entire flight. But if
you speak, you pay me the $10." The Scotsman thought he could do that, so he
and his wife got into the back seat together.
Off they went, with the pilot giving them his entire aerobatic routine. They did loops,
outside loops, snap rolls, split "S's" Immelman turns, even Lomcevaks, but not a
word from the backseat.
When they landed, the pilot hopped out, grinning and said to the
Scotsman, "Well, sir, you did very well, you sat back there during my extreme
aerobatic routine and didn't say a word." Whereupon the Scotsman said: "Well, I
almost did, when Mable fell out."
