A priest in a small Irish village loved his chickens that he kept in
the coop behind the church.
One Sunday morning, before mass, he went to feed the birds and
discovered that the cock was missing. He knew about the cock fights in
the village, so he decided to question his parishioners in the church.
During mass, he asked his congregation, "Has anybody got a cock?"
All the men stood up.
"No, no, that wasn't what I meant. Has anybody seen a cock?"
All the women stood up.
"No, no, that wasn't what I meant either. Has anybody seen a cock that
Doesn't belong to them?"
Half the women stood up!
"No, no, no. That wasn't what I meant. What I really mean is, has
anybody seen MY cock?"
Sixteen altar boys, two priests and a goat stood up.
