The bishop was moving around the parish hall after the Confirmation Mass when he spotted a little boy all alone in a corner of the room. The bishop went over to him and asked, "Why are you here on your own?" "Well" the little boy began,"my big brother told me to stand here and keep quiet, and he said the first person to come and ask me why I was here would be a nitwit"
The bishop paused. "Am I the first?" he asked. "No" said the boy, "it was that priest over there - the one you came in with". The bishop looked round, following the boy's finger. "Ah, my secretary" said the bishop. He paused again, smiled and said, "tell your big brother it works. it's a good game"
