Code Brown in Christmas Town.
In the December 2017 Podenstein’s Lab podcast, Shelby Dollar takes us on a world tour of bizarre (to us) holiday traditions from around El Blue Marble de Loco. From beating the gifts out of a log’s ass, to wondering if an old lady’s gonna drop by and eviscerate you because you didn’t say your prayers correctly, it’s a ho-ho-holy sh*t world of fun.
Like this: THE CAGANER. I put that in all caps, because in my head it sounds like Sean Connery talking in “The Highlander.”
“Ya feel that, highlander? It’s THE CAGANER.” And beach-side hilarity ensues.
Yup, that merry little darling of doo-doo, the holiday party pooper, that Elf on a shart (and yes, he IS watching you the whoooooole time), THE CAGANER, is a thing. Listen to the podcast, if you haven’t already. What a treat for Xmas, this little creature. It’s even a thing on Amazon.com. https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=caganer
THE CAGANER does not go…I mean, come…cheap. Like, 25 dollars not cheap for one little seasonal squatter. Whatwhat? Perhaps you’re feeling artsy fartsy…let that sink in for a second…and want to make your own out of some pinched-off Sculpey. Go for it! Heck, for 25 bucks, make it a DDYI (doodoo it yourself), and you could pop a squad of festive fecund friends.
Silent, but Merry. That’s the spirit.
