One morning, three Cajuns and three Yankees were in a ticket line at a train station. The three Northerners each bought a ticket and watched as the three Cajuns bought just one ticket."How are the three of you going to travel on only one ticket?" asked one of the Yankees."Watch and learn," answered one of the boys from Louisiana.
All six boarded the train where the three Yankees sat down,but the three Cajuns crammed into a restroom together and closed the door.Shortly after the train departed, the conductor came around to collect tickets. He knocked on the restroom 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, it was so clever that 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 astonishment, the three Cajuns didn't buy even one ticket."How are you going to travel without a ticket?" asked one of the perplexed Yankees."Watch and learn," answered the three Cajun boys in unison. When they boarded the train, the three Northerners crammed themselves into one restroom and the three Cajuns crammed into another one just down the way. Shortly after the train began to move, one of the Cajuns left their restroom and walked over to the one in which the Yankees were hiding. The Cajun knocked on the door and said, "Ticket, please."
There's just no way on God's green earth to explain how the Yankees won that war.
