    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 game..

    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 ticket?" asked one of the Yankees.

    "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 tickets..

    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 Yankees.

    "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...

    BTW we're getting a crap load of them here at Alabama too. It's funny that one was doing pharmacy when UA doesn't have a pharmacy program. I asked why they chose alabama and her direct words "they have a good football team"

    I just laughed and her mom looked at me, gonna be a long ride back to michigan for them damn yankees

    I'm trying to figure out why they were headed to Athens, then boarded the return trip in Charlotte. But what do I know? I'm just a dumb yankee. :wink:
    Given all the "love" for yankees here, there is a an apparent irony.
