For your birthday, your aunt gave you a maple syrup dispenser shaped like a rooster. Please write her a thank-you note:

Dear Auntie, Thank you for the cock-shaped dispenser. I like nice cocks but dislike sweet things: even the very dark maple syrup is too sweet for me - except on a cock, or is it a rooster ? (What a ridiculously-prudish word!) The cock is now in landfill - the best place for non-avian cocks.
