Sarah appeared on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire...

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

Sarah: "Sure I'll have a go."

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

A-Robin

B-Sparrow

C-Cuckoo

D-Thrush

"Remember, Sarah, it's worth 1 million dollars."

Sarah: "It's a cuckoo."

Regis: "You're sure? You can walk with the $500,000 or play on for
the million."

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

Regis: "Is that your final answer?"

Sarah: "It is."

Regis: "Are you confident?"

Sarah: "Absolutely!"

Regis: "Sarah.....you had $500,000 and you said C -Cuckoo.
Well....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 Sarah."

That night Sarah calls her friend Carol and they go to a local
bar for a celebration drink. As they are sipping their champagne.
Carol turns to Sarah and asks, "Tell me, how did you know that it
was the cuckoo that does not build its own nest?"

"It was so simple," Sarah replied, "Everybody knows that
cuckoos live in clocks."
