I laughed at this.

Then, drat, I thought about it.

And I wondered, "How often as I preach/teach/counsel is this the end result in those who hear?"

Then I remembered, "Let not many of us become teachers, for as such we shall incur the stricter judgment (NOT condemnation as some translations wrongly say)"

Then I recalled, I believe Spurgeon's, practice of testing his sermons on a young maid; if she understood it, he preached it; if she did not, back to the drawing board.

Perhaps it's a good idea that I try to always pray as I prepare and as I preach, "Lord, help me not to impress or entertain anyone; enable me to communicate Your truth..."
