THE PRIEST'S ROOSTER
Added on: 19th May 2015
The Priest of a small village was
very fond of his flock of ten hens
and a cockerel.
He kept them in a hen house behind
the parish, but one Saturday night,
the cockerel was missing.
The priest, suspecting fowl play
decided to say something about it
at church the next morning.
At Mass, he asked the congregation,
has anyone got a cock?
To which all the men stood up.
"No,no," he said, somewhat flustered,
"that's not what I meant.
"Has anybody SEEN a cock?"
All the women stood up.
"No, no," he said.
"That’s not what I meant either.
Has anyone seen a cock that
doesn't belong to them."
Half the women stood up.
"No, no," He said,
now thoroughly embarrassed
"Perhaps I should rephrase the question:
Has anybody here seen MY cock?"
All the choirboys stood up.
