On the lighter side...

Jimmy Akin launched a shot the other day that has been generating a surprisingly lively debate all over the Catholic blogosphere, when he brought up the practice of burying a statue of St. Joseph upside down in order to sell a house. The Curt Jester sees this practice as an effort to coerce the Saint into interceding, and asks, "why not threaten to break off a finger each week until the house is sold? Or perhaps suspend him in a vat of hot Wesson oil or attach tiny electrodes to the statue."
