Irish Bobby appeared on “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire” and towards the end of the program had already won $500,000.

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

“Sure,” said Bobby. “I’ll have a go!”

Which of the following birds does NOT build its own nest?

“I haven’t got a clue,” said Bobby, ”so I’ll use my last lifeline and phone my friend Billy.”

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

“Hell, Bobby!” cried Billy. “That’s simple. It’s a cuckoo.”

“Are you sure?”

“Of course I’m sure.”

Bobby hung up the phone and told Chris, “I’ll go with cuckoo as my answer.”

“Is that your final answer?” asked Chris.

“That it is.”

There was a long, long pause and then the presenter screamed, “Cuckoo is the correct answer! Bobby, you’ve won $1 million!”

The next night, Bobby invited Billy to their local pub to buy him a drink.

“Tell me, Billy? How in Heaven’s name did you know it was Cuckoo that doesn’t build its own nest? You’re no bird expert!”

“Well Bobby you idiot,” said Billy, “Because everyone knows he lives in a clock!”

A teacher asked her students to use the word “fascinate” in a sentence.

Martha said, “My family went to the Louisville Zoo, and it was fascinating to see all the animals.”

The teacher said, “That was good, but I wanted you to use the word ‘fascinate.’”

Sarita raised her hand. She said, “My family went to the Cincinnati Zoo and I was fascinated by the animals.”

“That’s good, too,” said the teacher, “but I really wanted you to use the word fascinate.”

Little Billy raised his hand.

The teacher hesitated because Billy was noted for his bad language, but surely he couldn’t damage a world like “fascinate,” so she called on him.

Billy said proudly, “My aunt has a sweater with 10 buttons, but her b*bs are so big she can only fasten eight.”
