"OK. The question is: Which of the following birds does NOT build it's
(a) Robin ( Sparrow © Cuckoo, or (d) Thrush.
"I haven't got a clue." said Mick, "so I'll use by last lifeline and phone
my friend Paddy back home in Ballygoon."
Mick called up his mate, told him the circumstances and repeated the
question to him.
"Bleddy hell, Mick!" cried Paddy. Dat's simple........it's a cuckoo."
"Are you sure, Paddy?" asked Mick
"I'm bleddy sure."
Mick hung up the phone and told the TV presenter, "I'll go with cuckoo as

There was a long, long pause, then the presenter screamed.
"Cuckoo is the correct answer! Mick, you've won $1 million!"
The next night, Mick invited Paddy to their local pub to buy him a drink.
"Tell me, Paddy? How in God's name did you know it was the cuckoo that

"You really are tick Mick, laughed Paddy. Everyone knows a bleedy
cuckoo lives in a clock.
