And 'cock-up' comes from the sense of canted (type that very carefully!) or tilted: think of 'cock a leg' or 'cock-eyed' (are we still allowed to say that?) or 'cock-billed (which is where all the yards of a ship are cocked as a salute -- honestly).
Not to be confused with any other sort of cock with which you may be familiar!
