Three Rednecks and three Yankees are traveling by train to a conference. At the station, the three Yankees each buy a train ticket and watch as the three Rednecks buy only a single ticket. “How are three people going to travel on only one ticket?” asks a Yankee.“Watch and learn,” answered one of the Rednecks.All six boarded the train where the three Yankees sat down, but the three Rednecks crammed into a toilet together and closed the door.Shortly after the train departed, the conductor came around to collect tickets. He knocked on the toilet door and said, “Ticket, 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 they decided to do the same thing on the return trip and save some money.That afternoon when they got back to the station, they bought a single ticket for the return trip and watched, while to their amazement, the three Rednecks didn’t buy even one ticket.“How are you going to travel without a ticket?” asked a puzzled Yankee.“Watch and learn,” answered the three Rednecks in unison. When they boarded the train, the three Yankees crammed themselves into a toilet and the three Rednecks crammed into another toilet just down the way.Shortly after the train began to move, one of the Rednecks left their toilet and walked over to the toilet in which the Yankees were hiding.The Redneck knocked on the door and said, “Ticket, please.”

And to think, only a few months ago this same story was with lawyers and engineers.And before that, it was engineers and accountants. Probably got told out of order, as it looks like the engineers learned the trick from the lawyers, and then pulled it on the accountants.--Peter
