    Accountants and Engineers on a Train

    Three engineers and three accountants are traveling by train to a
    conference. At the station, the three accountants each buy tickets and

    To their astonishment, the engineers don't buy a ticket at all. "How are

    three accountants cram into a restroom and the three engineers cram into
    another one nearby. The train departs.

    Shortly afterward, one of the engineers leaves his restroom and walks over
    to the restroom where the accountants are hiding. He knocks on the door
    and says, "Ticket, please...
