    I know where the humor is in the above church joke, but I I don't know how to correct the sentence, to make it sound normal. Could you tell me how to rewrite it?
    By the way, because I am Taiwanese, please correct the above message.

    Thank you,

    You're welcome, tien-sung. Leave a space after your punctuation marks, not before them.
