A contestant on 'Who Wants to be a Millionaire?' had reached the final

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

And as she suspected it would be, the million-dollar question was no

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:

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.'
