Did he do something with his body from waist above? Below?

Did he touch/affect any other person when doing it?

Was he drunk? Relevant?

Did he do it at the beginning of the party? In the middle? Towards its end? Relevant?

From thighs above? Yes

Did he do it deliberately or by mistake? That's difficult to establish with certainty but I would suggest that he likely knew what he was doing but would not have done it if he had not been plastered

Did he remove any part of his clothing? \b[I don't know but he would certainly have undone part of his clothing}

Any gestures? No, I don't think so

Oh dear... this is what I feared...

Did he know that there were other people with him in the room? Did he see properly?

Did he see properly? I have no idea

Did he expose a part of his body? If so, was it just this or was there something else to it?

Did he expose a part of his body? He would have to have done so to execute the act that followed
If so, was it just this or was there something else to it? See above

So I assume the host should have said something like: Better in than out, I always say, young man!

that would have been really aristocratically decadent...

Well that is quite witty but as you will discover there is more to find out before you will hit on (what I think you'll agree) would be the most fitting thing to have said

I mean.. better OUT than IN... I knew what you meant :-)

Was there a reason (apart from a full bladder of course) that our friend did this?

RECAP

This is a real life scenario that took place at an engagement party. The party was held by the parents of the bride to be to be, in their own home. The prospective husband turned up late and being very drunk proceeded to urinate in the fireplace.

The outcome was that the engagement / wedding was called off.

We donít know exactly what was said when the man urinated in the fireplace in front of his hosts but there is something very specific that would've been especially logical and apt. Your object is to discover exactly what the phrase is.
