Great Joke

My grandmother-in-law sent me this great joke:
    Three Southerners and three Yankees are traveling by
    train to the Super Bowl. At the station, the three Northerners
    each buy a ticket and watch as the three Southerners buy just one ticket.

    "How are the three of you going to travel on only
    one ticket?" asks one of the Yankees.

    "Watch and learn," answers one of the men from the
    South

    They all board the train. The three Yankee men take
    their respective seats but all three Southerners cram into a toilet
    together and close the door. Shortly after the train has departed, the
    conductor comes around collecting tickets. He knocks on the toilet
    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 moves on.

    The Yankees see this happen and agree it was quite a
    clever idea, so after the game they decide to do the same thing on
    the return trip
    and save some money. When they get to the station
    they buy a single ticket for the return trip, but see, to their
    astonishment, that the three Southerners don't buy any ticket at all.

    "How are you going to travel without a ticket?" says
    one perplexed Yankee.

    "Watch and learn," answers the men from the South.

    When they board the train the three Northerners cram
    themselves into a toilet and the three Southerners cram into another
    toilet just down the way. Shortly after the train is on its way, one
    of the Southerners leaves their toilet and walks over to the toilet in which
    the Yankees are hiding. The Southerner knocks on their door and
    says, "Ticket, please."
