6th day... Papal caganer

"Ox and ass before him bow," we sing. And if you thought that was just about donkeys, look again. Quietly, reverently, Papa Benny delivers a full papal moon at the nativity, then deposits a humble offering on the ground – a close encounter of the turd kind.

Caganers are traditional figures made for Catalonian manger scenes. Along with Mary, Joseph and the rest of the Christmas cast, the Catalans also dump a character in a corner of the stable, with his pants down, quietly doing his business. Some say it's just for laughs. Others think there's an important theological point being made about the earthiness of the incarnation.

Either way, the papal stool is a valuable addition to any crib scene. And you'll be relieved to know Poop Benedict can be in yours for just 14 Euros. Get yours here!
