Jooooo, no sé como explicarlo sin herir sensibilidades. Si alguien quiere que le arreglen el cuerpo, quiere decir que le peguen una buena f******. Ya sé que es un poco verde, pero también forma parte del lenguaje.

hermit is on a distinguished road
colloquially often heard: "to get your pipes cleaned", or
"to get your ashes hauled". (not for polite conversation)
