Joke time!Posted: May 30, 2013
A guy goes on Who Wants to Be A Millionaire? and does great, he storms through every round with his “phone a friend lifeline” still in play when he gets to the million pound question.
“Which of these birds doesn’t make it’s own nest?” Chris Tarrant asks. “A- Gosshawk, B- Flamingo, C- Nightjar or D- Cuckoo”
Suddenly the pressure gets to our man and his mind goes completely blank. The fear of losing out on a million causes him to panic and while he has an inkling he’s lost all confidence in himself and second guesses himself.
He takes his lifeline and they ring his buddy, Pat, who’s mainly there if sporting questions came up. Pat answers the phone and hears the question. Without hesitation, Patrick says “It’s D! Cuckoo. Easy one!”
Our hero follows his friend’s advice and wins the money. A few days later he pops round Pat’s to thank him, take him for a pint and give him a bit of the winnings.
“I gotta say, Pat, I was worried. I didn’t know if you knew anything about birds.”
“Oh, come on, it was pretty easy.” Pat smiles. “Everyone knows cuckoo’s don’t build nests. They live in clocks!”
Any thoughts? You know what to do. BETEO.
