  Australians and Englishmen  
     
 
Three Australian and three Englishmen are going to the football match.  At
the station, the three Australians each buy a single ticket, and watch
as the three Englishmen buy just one ticket between them.

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

" Watch and learn " answers one of the Englishmen.

They all board the train.  The Australians take their respective seats,
but all three Englishmen cram into the loo and close the door behind them.

Shortly after the train has departed the conductor arrives to collect the
tickets, he knocks on the loo door and says " ticket please "

The door opens slighlty and a single arm emerges with a ticket in hand,
the conductor takes it and moves on.

The Australians are mightily impressed, and after the game, to save money,
they decide to repeat the Englishmens trick, when they get to the station,
they buy a single ticket for the return trip.

To their astonishment, however, the Englishmen don't buy a ticket at all,

" How are you going to travel without a ticket " ? asks one perplexed
Australian.

" Watch and learn " says one of the Englishmen,

The train departs, the three Englishmen cram into a loo, and the three
Australians pile into another loo nearby,

Shortly afterwoods, one of the Englishmen sneaks out of the loo, knocks on
the door of the loo in which the Australians are hiding and says " Ticket
please "
