One morning, three Irishmen and three Englishmen were in a ticket counter queue at a train station. The three Englishmen each bought a ticket and watched as the three Irishmen bought just one ticket. 'How are the three of you going to travel on only one ticket?' asked one of the Englishmen. 'Be watchin and learnin,' answered one of the Irishmen. All six boarded the train where the three Englishmen sat down, but the three Irishmen 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 Englishmen 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 astonishment, the three Irishmen didn't buy even one ticket! 'How are you going to travel without a ticket?' asked a perplexed Englishman. 'Be watchin and learnin,' answered the three Irish boys in unison. When they boarded the train, the three Englishmen crammed themselves into a toilet and the three Irishmen crammed into another toilet just down the way. Shortly after the train began to move, one of the Irishmen left the toilet and walked over to the toilet in which the Englishmen were hiding. The Irishman knocked on the door and said, 'Ticket, please.'
