    Question HOW TO CORRECT THE SENTENCE


    "This being Easter Sunday, we will ask Mrs. Lewis to come forward and lay an egg on the alter. "
    I know where the humor is in above church joke, but I I don't know how to correct the sentence,and let the the sentence becomes normal,could you tell me how to rewrite it.
    By the way, because I am Taiwanese ,please correct the above massage (if any). Thank you .
