The new priest hears a couple of confessions, then the old priest asks
him to step out of the confessional for a few suggestions.
The old priest suggests, "Cross your arms over your chest, and rub your
chin with one hand and try saying things like 'yes, I see,' and 'yes, go
on,' and 'I understand.'
The new priest crosses his arms, rubs his chin with one hand and repeats
all the suggested remarks to the old priest.
The old priest says, ...
"Now, don't you think that's a little better than slapping your knee and
saying, "No sh*t... What happened next?"
