Clever Newfies


One morning, three Newfoundlanders and three Albertans, traveling from Halifax to Toronto, were in line at the ticket counter at a train station. The three Albertans each bought a ticket and watched as the three Newfies bought just one ticket.

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

"Watch and learn," answered one of the Newfies.

All six boarded the train where the three Albertans sat down, but the three Newfies 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, ‚ÄúTicket, 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 Albertans saw this happen and agreed it was quite a clever idea, so clever they decided to do the same thing on the return trip and save some money.

One week later when they returned to the station in Toronto, the Albertans smiled cleverly as they bought a single ticket for the return trip.

They watched to their complete astonishment, as the three Newfies didn't buy even one ticket!

"Ok smart guys! How are you going to travel without any ticket?" asked a perplexed Albertan.

"Watch and learn," answered the three Newfie boys in unison. When they boarded the train, the three Albertans crammed themselves into a toilet and the three Newfies crammed into another toilet just down the way.

Shortly after the train began to move, one of the Newfies left their toilet and walked over to the toilet in which the Albertans were hiding.

The Newfie knocked on the door and said, "Ticket, please."
