Fertilizing the Earth  
We had a tasteful Facebook-inspired discussion of the Caganer, a Catalan tradition at the end of the year, and I conjectured that there must be one portraying the President-Elect. nellorat found one, and sure enough he has the Constitution under him.

I would expect nothing else from the Catalans. I disagree with them over independence, but I admire their wit and love of tradition.

The idea of the Caganer is such a human reaction to the divine. It is probably necessary, for all the reasons mentioned in the information to which you link, but it is (or perhaps "and is therefore") a tiny shock to the system.

As to the President-Elect, yes, I'm not at all surprised that she was able to find one such.

I wonder if anyone has made a Caganer shitting on the Orange One's face.

Vast amusement at the person quoted on Wikipedia who opined, "A nativity scene without a caganer is not a nativity scene." We're just such pikers over here.

I'll be jiggered. I'd never heard of that.
