The Caganer

In Spain, in Catalonia to be precise, it has long been a Christmas tradition to decorate your nativity scene with a caganer. Loosely translated, it means "the defecator".

Is that a
dipped chocolate caganer?

They even sell caganers depicting famous people. Here's one:

Nothing is sacred:This is "Bob Esponja"

Of course they have a website!

From the BBC.

I'm offended that the Spanish are targeting Sponge Bob.

While I'm usually offended when people make fun of US Presidents or American symbols, it seems so "correct" when they portray obama in that way.

How bizarre! I'll never forget the first time I saw someone crapping at roadside driving through Europe. Def. not in Kansas anymore!
