Mick appeared on "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" and towards the end of the programme had already won £500,000.
You've done very well so far," said, Chris Tarrant, the show's presenter, "but for £1million you've only got one lifeline left - phone a friend.
Everything is riding on this question......will you go for it?"
"Sure," said Mick. "I'll have a go!"
Here comes the question:
Which of the following birds does NOT build its own nest?
I haven't got a clue," said Mick, "so I'll use my last lifeline and phone me friend Paddy back home in Dublin ". Mick called up his mate, and told him the circumstances and repeated the question to him.
"Fookin hell, Mick!" cried Paddy. "Dat's simple......it's a cuckoo."
“Are you sure?”
"I'm fookin sure."
Mick hung up the phone and told Chris, "I'll go with cuckoo as my answer."
"Is that your final answer?" asked Chris
"Dat it is, Sir."
There was a long, long pause, then the presenter screamed, Cuckoo is the correct answer! Mick, you've won £1 million!"
The next night, Mick invited Paddy to their local pub to buy him a drink "Tell me, Paddy? How in God's name did you know it was the cuckoo that doesn't build it's own nest?. I mean you know fook-all about birds."
"For fooks sake!" laughed Paddy. "Everybody knows a cuckoo lives in a clock!"
