Watch and Learn


Three Southerners and three Yankees are travelling by train to the
Super Bowl. At the station, the three Northerners each buy a ticket and
watch as the three Southerners buy just one ticket. "How are the three of you going to travel on only one ticket?" asks one of the Yankees.


"Watch and learn," answers one of the men from the South. They all board the train. The three Yankee men take their respective seats but all three Southerners cram into a toilet together and close the door.


Shortly after the train has departed, the conductor comes around collecting tickets. He knocks on the toilet door and says, "Ticket please. "The door opens just a crack and a single arm emerges with a ticket in hand. The conductor takes it and moves on.

The Yankees see this happen and agree it was quite a clever idea, so
after the game, they decide to do the same thing on the return trip and
save some money.

When they get to the station, they buy a single ticket for the return
trip, but see, to their astonishment, that the three Southerners don't
buy any ticket at all. "How are you going to travel without a ticket?" says one perplexed Yankee. "Watch and learn," answer the men from the South.

When they board the train the three Northerners cram themselves into a
toilet and the three Southerners cram into another toilet just down the way.

Shortly after the train is on its way, one of the Southerners leaves their
toilet and walks over to the toilet in which the Yankees are hiding.


The Southerner knocks on their door and says, "Ticket please".
