"Who Wants To Be A Millionaire"

A blonde named Barbara is appearing on Who
Wants To Be A Millionaire...

Regis: "Barbara, you've done very well so far -
$500,000 and one lifeline left -- phone a friend.
The next question will give you the first ever Million
dollars if you get it right ... but if you get it wrong you
will drop back to $32,000 -- are you ready?"

Barbara: "Sure I'll have a go"

Regis: "Which of the following birds does not build its
own nest? Is it........

A-Robin
B-Sparrow
C-Cuckoo
D-Thrush.

"Remember Barbara its worth 1 Million dollars.

Barbara: " I think I know who it........ but I'm not 100%....
No, I haven't got a clue. I'd like to phone a friend Regis
just to be sure."

Regis: "Yes, who, Barbara, do you want to phone?

Barbara: "I'll phone my friend Carol back home
in Brooklyn." (ringing)

Carol (also a blonde): "Hello..."

Regis: "Hello Carol, it's Regis Philbin here from Who
Wants to be a Millionaire-I have Barbara here and she
is doing really well on $500,000, but needs your help
to a Million. The next voice you hear will be Barbara's
and she'll read you the question. There are 4 possible
answers and 1 correct answer and you have 30 seconds
to answer - fire away Barbara."

Barbara: "Carol, which of the following birds does not
build its own nest?

Is it:

A-Robin
B-Sparrow
C-Cuckoo
D-Thrush

Carol: "Oh Gees, Barbara that's simple.....It's a Cuckoo.

Barbara: "You think?"

Carol: "I'm sure."

Barbara: " Thanks Carol." (hangs up)

Regis: "Well, do you want to stick on $500,000 or play on
for the Million, Barbara?"

Barbara: "I want to play, I'll go with C-Cuckoo."

Regis: "Is that your final answer?"

Barbara: "It is."

Regis: "Are you confident?"

Barbara: "Yes fairly, Carol's a sound bet."

Regis: "Barbara.....you had $500,000 and you said
C-Cuckoo... you're right! - You have just won ONE
MILLION DOLLARS. Here is your check. You have been
a great contestant and a real gambler. Audience please
put your hands together for Barbara."

(clapping)

That night Barbara calls round to Carol and brings her
down to a local bar for a celebration drink and, as they
are sipping their Champagne, Barbara turns to Carol
and asks "Tell me Carol, How did you know that it was
the Cuckoo that does not build its own nest?

Carol: "Listen Barbara, everybody knows that a Cuckoo
lives in a clock."
