    Default A little Yankee-Rebel humor

    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.

    Glad you thought it was funny. When I first started reading it, I had no idea where it was going.

    MM- coming from a Yankee, and you in particular, that's a high level of praise.

    I'm a yank, but my mom was a southerner. great joke! The real reason the south lost the war is because they eat so slow. That's one habit I picked up

    That is so true. It's a real social occasion in this part of the country.
