You're supposed to tell him he has to stay there until the house is sold.

In Italy people put statues of St. Anthony in their recessed doorways to
keep men from urinating in them. Sometimes you see that in Italian
neighborhoods here. Makes sense to me.

I've heard of that yoga thing. My SIL, who's a nut, practices "Christian
yoga" to help keep herself pure :-(
