Sven-Goran Eriksson is on 'Who wants to be a Millionaire' and has reached
the £1 million question.
Chris Tarrant says, "Right Sven, this is for £1 million, and remember,
you still have two lifelines left, so please take your time. "Here's your
question: What type of animal lives in a Set?
"Is it. a, a badger b, a ferret c, a mole or d, a cuckoo?" Sven ponders for
a while and says, "No, I'm sorry Chris, I'm not too sure. I'll have
to go 50-50."
"Right, Sven, let's take away two wrong answers and see what you're left
'Badger' and 'Cuckoo' are the two remaining answers."
Sven has a long think, then scratches his head and says, "No, Chris, I'm
still not sure, I'm going to have to phone a friend." So who are you going
to call, Sven?" says Chris.
"Hmmm, I think I'll call David Beckham."
So Tarrant phones David Beckham.
"David, this is Chris Tarrant from 'Who wants to be a Millionaire'.
I've got Sven-Goran Eriksson here, and with your help he could win
£1million. The next voice you hear will be Sven's." "Hello David" says
Sven. "It's the boss here. What type of animal lives in a set? Is it a
badger or a cuckoo?"
"It's a badger, boss." says Becks without hesitation. "You sure, son?" says
"Definitely, boss. One hundred percent. It's a badger. Definitely."
"Right, Chris," says Sven, "I'll go with David. The answer's a badger."
"Final answer, Sven?"
"Final answer, Chris."
"That's the correct answer. You've won £1 million!"
Cue wild celebrations.
Next morning at training, Sven calls Beckham across."Son, that was
brilliant last night. I thought I might be taking a gamble giving you a
call, but you played a blinder! But how the heck did you know that a
badger lives in a sett?"
"Oh I didn't, boss..." replies Beckham, "... But everybody knows a cuckoo
lives in a clock!"
