Mark Twain met a friend at the races one day. This friend came up to him and said, "I'm broke. I wish you would buy me a ticket back to the city."
"Well," Mark said, "I'm nearly broke myself, but I'll tell you what I'll do. You can hide under the seat and I'll hide you with my legs."
The friend agreed.
Then Mark Twain went down to the ticket office and bought two tickets. When the train pulled our his friend was safely under the seat. The inspector came around for the tickets and Mark gave him two. The inspector said, "Where is the other one?"
Tapping his head the humorist said in a loud voice, "That is my friend's ticket! He is a little eccentric and like to ride under the seat."
