Jim receives an e-mail from his neighbour: “Sorry Jim, but I have been using your wife… day and night whenever you’re not at home. In fact, probably more than you. I’m confessing now because I feel really guilty. I hope you will accept my sincerest apologies. I will ask your permission in the future and probably be willing to pay.

Mick, from Dublin, appeared on ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire‘ and towards the end of the program had already won 500,000 euros.
“You’ve done very well so far,” said Chris Tarrant, the show’s presenter,

“I haven’t got a clue,” said Mick.
”So I’ll use my last life-line and phone my friend Paddy back home in Dublin.”
Mick called up his mate, and told him the circumstances and repeated the question to him.
“Bloody hell, Mick!” cried Paddy. “Dat’s simple it’s a cuckoo.”

“Tell me, Paddy? How in Heaven’s name did you know it was da Cuckoo that doesn’t build its own nest?”
“Because he lives in a bloody clock, ya dumb bastard!”
