When Irish eyes are smiling ....

For any of you that have ever been to ireland you will REALLY appreciate the following........and for those that havent..... you wouldnt believe how close to the truth this is !! :-)

Mick appeared on the Irish version of "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire"
and
towards the end of the programme had already won €500,000.

"You've done very well so far," said the show's presenter, "but for €1

million you've only got one lifeline left - phone a friend.

Everything is riding on this question...will you have a go?"
"Ahhhh ....Sure," said Mick. "I'll have a go!"
"OK. The question is, which of the following birds does NOT build its
own nest?

(a) Robin, (b) Sparrow, (c) cuckoo, or (d) thrush."

"To be sure......I haven't got a clue," said Mick, "so I'll use my 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.

"Fookin hell, Mick!" cried Paddy. "Dat's simple... it's a cuckoo."
"Are you sure, Paddy?" asked Mick. "I'm fookin sure."
Mick hung up the phone and told the TV presenter, "I'll go with da
Cuckoo
as my answer."
"Is that your final answer?" asked the host.

"To be sure ...Dat it is, Sir."

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
doesn't build its own nest? I mean you know fook-all about birds."

"Ah bejaaysus!" laughed Paddy. "Everybody knows a fookin' Cuckoo lives
in
a clock!" :-)
