Who Wants To Be A Millionaire


Recommended Posts

Mick from Dublin appeared on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire and towards the end of the program had already won $500,000.
"You've done really well so far" said the show's host, "but for one million dollars, you've only got one life line left, phone a friend. Everything is riding on this question. Will you go for it?"
"Sure" said Mick. "'ll have a go!"
"Which of the following birds does NOT build its own nest?"
- Sparrow
- Thrush
- Magpie
- Cuckoo
"I haven't got a clue" said Mick, "so I'll use my last lifeline to phone my friend Paddy back home in Dublin."
Mick called up his mate and told him the cicumstances and repeated the questioned.
"Ah, Mick!" cried Paddy. "Dat's simple. It's the cuckoo."
"Are you sure Paddy?" said Mick.
"Of course I am."
Mick hung up the phone and told the host.. "I'll go with cuckoo as my answer."
"Is that your final answer?"
"Dat it is" said Mick
There was a long long pause and then the presented screamed "Cuckoo is the correct answer! Mick you've won $1 million".
The next night Mick invited Paddy to the local pub for a drink to celebrate.
"Tell me Paddy, how did you know it was da Cuckoo that doesn't build his own nest?" asked Mick.
"Easy" says Paddy. "Everyone knows he lives in a clock!"
