The Irish Millionaire

****, from Dublin, appeared on 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire' and towards theend of the program had already won 500,000 euros.

"You've done very well so far," said Chris Tarrant, the show'spresenter, "but for a million euros you've only got one life-line left,phone a friend. Everything is riding on this question. Will you go forit?"

"Sure," said ****. "I'll have a go!"

"Which of the following birds does NOT build its own nest?
a) Sparrow
b) Thrush
c) Magpie
d) Cuckoo?"

"I haven't got a clue." said ****, ''So I'll use my last lifeline andphone my friend Paddy back home in Dublin ...."

**** called up his mate, and told him the circumstances and repeated thequestion to him.

"Fookin ‘ell, ****!" cried Paddy. "Dat's simple -- it's acuckoo."
"Are you sure?"
"I'm fookin sure."

**** hung up the phone and told Chris, "I'll go with cuckoo as myanswer."

"Is that your final answer?" asked Chris.

"Dat it is."

There was a long, long pause and then the presenter screamed, "Cuckoo isthe correct answer! ****, you've won 1 million euros!"

The next night, **** invited Paddy to their local pub to buy him a drink.

"Tell me, Paddy -- how in Heaven's name did you know it was da Cuckoo thatdoesn't build its own nest?"

"Because he lives in a Fookin clock!"
