Free Ride on the Train

Three Malays and three Chinese are traveling by train to a premier league football match in England. At the station, the three Malays each buy a ticket and watch as the three Chinese buy just one ticket between them.

"How are the three of you going to travel on only one ticket?" asks one of the Malays.. "Watch and learn, bro," answers one of the Chinese

They all board the train. The Malays take their respective seats but all three Chinese cram into a toilet and close the door behind them.

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 Malays see this and agree it was quite a clever idea.  So after the game, they decide to copy the Chinese on the return trip and save some money.

When they get to the station, they buy a single ticket for the return trip.  To their astonishment, the Chinese  don't buy a ticket at all!!

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

"Watch and learn  bro." answers a Chinese .

When they board the train the three Malays cram into a toilet and soon after the three Chinese cram into another nearby.  The train departs.

Shortly afterwards, one of the Chinese leaves the toilet and walks over to the toilet where the Malays are hiding.  He knocks on the door and says, "Ticket please!"
