Three Canadians ~

Three Canadians and three Americans are travelling by train a hockey game. At the station, the three Americans each buy tickets and watch as the three Canadians buy only a single ticket." How are three people going to travel on only one ticket?" asks an American. " Watch and you'll see," answer a Canadian.

They all board the train. The Americans take their respective seats but all three Canadians cram into a bathroom and close the door behind them. Shortly after after the train has departed, the conductor comes around collecting tickets. He knocks on the bathroom 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 movs on. The American see this and agree it was quite a clever idea.

So after the game, they decided to copy the Canadians on the return trip and save some money (being clever with money and all that). When they get to the station, they buy a single ticket for the return trip. To their astonishment, the Canadians don't buy a ticket at all."How are you going to travel without a ticket?" says one perplexed American. "Watch and you'll see," answer a Canadian.

When they board the train the Americans cram into the bathroom and the three Canadians cram into another bathroom nearby. Once the train leaves the station, one of the Canadians leave and walks over to the bathroom where the Americans are hiding, knocks on the door and says,"Ticket, please."
