The new vicar popped into the church office with a printed copy of his yet-to-be delivered first sermon.  Standing in front of the office's new paper shredder, he stared at the machine, a bit perplexed.  The church secretary, sensing he needed help, walked over and asked if she could do something for him.  "Yes," the vicar said, "Can you show me how this thing works?"  "Gladly," she said, taking the pages from his hand and feeding them into the shredder.  "Thanks," said the vicar politely.  "But where do the copies come out?"
