Southern Ingenuity 

One morning 3 South Georgia good old boys and 3 Yankees were in a ticket 
line at the Albany train station heading to Athens for a big football 

The 3 Northerners each bought a ticket and watched as the 3 Southerners 
bought just one ticket among them. 

"How are the 3 of you going to travel on one 1 ticket?" asked one of the 

"Watch and learn" answered one of the boys from the South. 

When the 6 travelers boarded the train, the 3 Yankees sat down, but the 3 
Southerners crammed into a bathroom together and closed the door. 

Shortly after the train departed, the conductor came around to collect 

He knocked on the bathroom door and said, "tickets please." the door 
opened just a crack and a single arm emerged with a ticket in hand. The 
Conductor took it and moved on. 

The Yankees saw this happen and agreed it was quite a clever idea. Indeed, 
so clever that they decided to do the same thing on the return trip and 
save some money. 

That evening after the game when they got to the Charlotte train station, 
they bought a single ticket for the return trip while to their 
astonishment the 3 Southerners didn't buy even 1 ticket. 

"How are you going to travel without a ticket?" asked one of the perplexed 

"Watch and learn", answered one of the Southern boys. 

When they boarded the train the 3 Northerners crammed themselves into a 
bathroom and the 3 Southerners crammed themselves into the other bathroom 
across from it. 

Shortly after the train began to move, one of the Southerners left their 
bathroom and walked quietly over to the Yankee's bathroom. He knocked on the 
door and said "ticket please". 

There's just no way on God's green earth to explain how the Yankees won 
the war.
