originally from Nashville, TN, says the snow/ice up north kinda slows their brain, whereas the warm southern climate makes the good ole boys antsy.
One morning, three Southerners and three Yankees were in a ticket counter
line at a train station. The three Northerners each bought a ticket and
watched as the three Southerners 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 the South.
All six boarded the train where the three Yankees sat down but the three
Southerners 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 Yankees 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 Southerners didn't buy even one ticket.
"How are you going to travel without a ticket?" asked a perplexed Yankee.
"Watch and learn," answered the three Southern boys in unison.
When they boarded the train, the three Northerners crammed themselves
into a toilet and the three Southerners crammed into another toilet just
down the way. Shortly after the train began to move, one of the
Southerners left their toilet and walked over to the toilet in which the
Yankees were hiding. The Southerner knocked on the door and said,
There's just no way, on God's green earth to explain how the Yankees
could have ever won the war.
