My husband is a hoot when it comes to things like this. I think he misses the children being young enough to believe, or almost believe, his nonsense. Now they call him ijapúva, which is liar in Guarani, the language of a Native Americans tribe, also called Guarani, in South America, where he is from. He says something outrageous and they yell, “Japu, japu” which is “Lie, lie” but they love his oddball sense of humor and crazy imagination.
