Small Town Priest

Once upon a time in a small town, there lived a Priest who was very fond of his flock of ten hens and a cockerel, which he kept in a hen house behind the parish.
One Saturday night, he found that his cockerel went missing.
The Priest suspected fowl play, and 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?”
And all the choirboys stood up.
