    Bill and his wife Blanche go to the Yorkshire Show every year, and every year Bill would say:
    " Blanche, I'd like to ride in that there 'elicopter "

    Blanche always replied,
    " I know Bill, but that 'elicopter ride is twenty quid, and twenty quid is twenty quid! "

    One year Bill and Blanche went to the fair, and Bill said,
    " Blanche, I'm 75 years old. If I don't ride that there 'elicopter, I might never get another chance "

    To this, Blanche replied,
    " Bill that 'elicopter ride is twenty quid, and twenty quid is twenty quid "

    The pilot overheard the couple and said,
    " I'll make you a deal. I'll take the both of you for a ride. If you can stay quiet for the entire ride and don't say a word I won't charge you a penny!
    But if you say one word it's twenty quid. "

    Bill and Blanche agreed and up they went.
    The pilot did all kinds of fancy manoeuvers, but not a word was heard.
    He did his daredevil tricks over and over again,
    But still not a word...

    When they landed, the pilot turned to Bill and said,
    " By golly, I did everything I could to get you to yell out, but you didn't..
    I'm impressed! "

    Bill replied,
    " Well, to tell you t'truth I almost said summat when Blanche fell out,
    But tha' knows,
    twenty quid is twenty quid!

    From North Yorkshire originally, but have lived in West, and now currently reside right on the border in South Yorkshire, near the Peak District. The one accent that defies all interpretation as far as I'm concerned is Baaaarrrnsley!! :D
