Real Estate Jesus

Why not just sacrifice a virgin real estate agent and smear the blood on the front door?

From The National Post:

"A two-inch statue of St. Joseph is fast becoming a selling tool for homeowners and real estate agents trying to gain an edge in an uncertain market.

As tradition has it, the replicas of the husband of the Virgin Mary are usually buried upside down and a foot below ground and are supposed to lend a divine hand in helping to find a willing buyer.

Those who follow it seriously also pray to St. Joseph, who is the patron saint of carpenters but is also claimed by real estate agents.

At the Liturgica religious goods store in Ottawa, sales of the statues are up 50% since last year. And in Calgary, at Lumen Christi, the statues are moving through the store by the case."
