please excuse the random waste of bandwidth....

Three ibm ce's and three m$ se's are going on a trip together.  The three
micro$oft se's purchase their tickets first.  One of the IBM ce's purchases
a ticket as the other two wait.  The m$'ers are dumbfounded.  They ask how
all three expect to get to where they are going with only one ticket.  The
ibm'ers tell them to just watch and pay attention.  As everyone boards the
plan the three m$'ers take their seats as the three ibm'ers proceed to the
lavatory.  Shortly thereafter the stewardess passes through and collects
the tickets from the m$ employees.  Passing by the lavatory the stewardess
knocks and asks, "Tickets please."  The door inches open and out comes the
one ticket.  Once the stewardess is gone, the three ibm'ers emerge to take
their seats.  The m$'ers are impressed and decide they can do this also. 
When time for the return flight arrives the three m$'ers purchase their one
ticket as the ibm'ers just look on.  Once again the m$'ers are dumbfounded
and are again instructed to watch and pay attention.  Upon boarding the
plane the three ibm'ers enter the lavatory and the m$'ers enter the
adjacent one.  At this point one of the ibm'ers emerges to knock on the
door to the m$'ers lavatory and asks, "Tickets please."
