I have been to Spain. I have been to Spain at Christmas. Unlike the crappy manger scenes that Americans make that is limited to the manger only, in Spain they make a scene of the entire town with the manger being only a part of it.
And while in America, you can barely get people to notice when a manger scene is erected, in Spain they line up for a half mile in some places just to see it. I guess I didn’t look close enough to notice the Caganer. Here is one of Queen Elizabeth.
Yes hidden in Spanish scenes is a pooping statue. It started in Catalonia but has since moved to other areas. Somehow it symbolizes equality because in the end it doesn’t matter how famous you are, everyone poops.
One company creates many varieties poking fun at various icons and celebrities. There is even a Barack Obama with the words “Yes we Can” on it. Check out the video.
Oh and scroll down. One more day to vote in the Editorial Cartoon Caption Contest. Winner announced on Thursday.
