    A contestant 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 it:
    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 was, well-- blonde.
    -
    But she had no alternative. She called her friend 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 was 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 persuaded.
    -
    "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.
    -
    "Jeni, 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."

    That's funny. I think we could substitute CEO's for the blonds in jokes these days.
