The Parson's Lost Bicycle.. Or Was It?

The parson was very much worried."Listen", he said to his verger,"somebody has stolen my bicycle."
"Where have you been on it.Rector?" inquired that worthy.
"Only round the parish on my calls."
The verger suggested that the best plan would be for the rector to direct his Sunday sermon to the ten commandments "When you get to 'Thou shall not steal', you and I will watch the faces- we will soon see."
Sunday came, the rector started in fine flow about the commandments, then lost his thread, changed his subejct, and trailed off lamely.
"Sir, said the verger,"I thought you were going to..."
I know,Giles, I know. But you see, when I got to 'Thou shall not commit adultery' I suddenly remembered where I had left my bicycle."
