The Power of Believing in One's Friends......

The Power of Believing in One's  Friends *HUMOR*


A contestant,  Sally  on 'Who Wants to be a Millionaire?' had reached the
final plateau. If she answered the  next question correctly, she would win
$1,000,000. If she answered  incorrectly, she would pocket only the
$25,000 milestone money.

And as she suspected it would be, the  million-dollar question was no
pushover. It was, 'Which of the following  species of birds does not build
its own nest but instead lays its eggs in  the nests of other birds? Is

A) the condor

B) the buzzard

C) the cuckoo

D) the vulture

The woman was on the spot. She did not  know the answer. She had used up
her 50/50 Lifeline and her  Ask the Audience Lifeline. All that remained
was her Phone-a-Friend Lifeline. She  hoped she would not have to use it
because .. Her friend, Karen, from Sunset Beach, NC was, well, blonde

But she had no alternative.

She called her friend Karen, from Sunset Beach, NC and gave her the  question and the four choices.

The blonde responded  unhesitatingly:

'That's  easy. The answer is C: the cuckoo.'

The contestant had to make a decision and  make it fast. She considered
employing a reverse strategy and giving Meredith any answer except the one
that her friend had  given her And considering her friend as a blonde that
would  seem to be the logical thing to do. But her friend had responded
with such confidence, such  certitude, that the contestant could not help
but be  convinced.

'I need an  answer,' said Meredith. Crossing her fingers, the contestant
said, 'C: The  cuckoo.'

'Is that your  final answer?'
'Yes, that is  my final answer.'

And  Meredith replied,

'That  answer is.... Absolutely correct! You are now a  millionaire!'

Three days  later, the contestant hosted a party for her family and
friends, including the blonde who had  helped her win the million dollars.

'Karen, I just do not know how to thank  you,' said the contestant.

'How did you happen to know the right  answer?'

'Oh, come on,'  said the blonde... 'Everybody knows that cuckoos don't
build nests. They live in  clocks.'

Sally  fainted.......
