    Question WHERE IS THE HUMOR?

    A woman approached the minister after the sermon, and thanked him for his discourse. "I found it so helpful," she said.
    The minister replied: "I hope it will not prove as helpful as the last sermon you heard me preach."
    "Why, what do you mean?" asked the astonished woman.
    "Well," said the minister, "that sermon lasted you three months."


    The above joke was quoted from web site,could you please tell me where the humor point is? thank you in advance.

    NOT A TEACHER


    (1) I am not very intelligent, so I had to read it a few times in order

    to understand it (if I actually did).

    (2) I think that the minister is gently admonishing the lady. Apparently,

    she had not attended his services for the last three months!!!


    Respectfully yours,


    James

    It's not that funny- more of a gently humorous observation.
