A blonde named Pam is appearing on "Who
Wants To Be A Millionaire" with Regis Philbin.

Regis: "Pam, you're up to $500,000 with one
lifeline left: phone a friend. If you get it right,
the next question is worth one million dollars.
If you get it wrong, you drop back to $32,000.
Are you ready?"

Pam: "Yes."

Regis: "Which of the following birds does not
build its own nest? Is it A) robin, B) sparrow,
C) cuckoo, or D) thrush."

Pam: "I'd like to phone a friend. I'd like to call Carol."

Carol (also a blonde) answers the phone: "Hello?"

Regis: "Hello Carol, it's Regis Philbin from Who
Wants to be a Millionaire. I have your friend Pam
here who needs your help to answer the one
million dollar question. The next voice you hear
will be Pam's..."

Pam: "Carol, which of the following birds does not
build it's own nest? Is it A) robin, B) sparrow, C)
cuckoo, or D) thrush."

Carol: "Oh geez, Pam. That's simple. It's a cuckoo."

Pam: "Are you sure?"

Carol: "I'm sure."

Regis: "Pam, you heard Carol. Do you keep the
$500,000 or play for the million?"

Pam: "I want to play; I'll go with C) cuckoo."

Regis:" Is that your final answer?"

Pam: "Yes."

Regis: "Are you confident?"

Pam: "Yes; I think Carol's pretty smart."

Regis: "You said C) cuckoo... And you're right!
Congratulations, you have just won ONE MILLION

To celebrate, Pam flies Carol to New York. That
night they go out on the town. As they're sipping
champagne, Pam looks at Carol and asks her,"
Tell me, how did you know that it was the cuckoo
that does not build its own nest?"

"Pam, it was easy," replies her (blonde?) friend.
"Everybody knows that cuckoos live in clocks."
