The Written Word

Merry Excrement!

New YouTube Video!

Ah, Christmas Time. Traditions, food, music, and … Caganers?

You see these things in nativity scenes all over Catalonia, although usually not in the form of Johnny Depp. Mostly they look a little like Where’s Waldo without the stripes. Doesn’t matter which manger you look at, be it in a school, government building, a home … there he is. Right next to the rest of the cast. Only this guy has a special … feature.

I have no idea who came up with this, but it’s been going on since the 18th century. Tiny baby Hay-sus, the wise men, the immaculate mama … and this guy taking a dump.

You see these variations in souvenir shops all over. I once bought Hilary Clinton for a right-leaning family member. Go figure. This guy I bought for myself. Seemed somehow fitting to feature him on The Pirate Wanderer.

So … enjoy. Leave comments, and as always, please subscribe to the YouTube channel!
