Mick from Dublin appeared on 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire'
and towards the end of the program had already won 500,000 pounds !!

You've done very well so far said Chris Tarrant the show's presenter
but for a million pounds you've only got one life-line left ... phone a friend.
Everything is riding on this question so will you go for it ??

Sure said Mick I'll have a go !!

Ok Mick listen very carefully said Chris ... which of the following birds does NOT build its own nest ?

a) Sparrow

b) Thrush

c) Magpie

d) Cuckoo

After a long think Mick said I haven't got a clue Chris so I'll use my last lifeline and phone my friend Paddy back home in Dublin


Mick called up his mate, and told him the circumstances and repeated the question to him

Fookin hell Mick !! cried Paddy dat's simple ... it's a cuckoo

Are you fookin sure Paddy said Mick ??

Mick I'm fookin sure to be sure !!

Mick hung up the phone and told Chris I'll go wit Cuckoo as my answer

Is that your final answer asked Chris ?

Dat it is sir ... dat it is said Mick

There was a long ... long pause and then Chris screamed Mick ... Cuckoo is the correct answer !
Mick you've won a million pounds !!

The next night Mick invited Paddy to their local pub to buy him a drink
Tell me Paddy said Mick ... how da fook did you know it was da Cuckoo that doesn't build its own nest ??

Paddy laughed ... because he lives in a fookin clock Mick ya fookin idiot
