Taken from Wiki page on the "Caganer" or pooter...

Possible reasons for placing a man who is in the act of excreting waste in a scene which is widely considered holy include:
Tradition.
Perceived humor.
Finding the Caganer is a fun game, especially for children.
The Caganer, by creating feces, is fertilizing the Earth. However, this is probably an a posteriori explanation, and few cite this reason for including the Caganer in the Nativity scene.
The Caganer represents the equality of all people: regardless of status, race, or gender, everyone poos.
Increased naturalism of an otherwise archetypal (thus idealised) story, so that it is more believable, taken literally and seriously.
The idea that God will manifest himself when he is ready, without regard for whether we human beings are ready or not.
The caganer reinforces that the infant Jesus is God in human form, with all that being human implies.

I thought that Jesus was pooping on western traditions and stealing candycanes from infidels?

"It`s a giant version of the Little Crapper! It`s a tradition in Spain...they hide a little figurine in the nativity scene and it`s a game to try and find it."

Blasphemous fun for everyone! :D
Those shoppers are lucky he has such tight, uniform stools. Otherwise he`d be spreading "Christmas cheer" eeeeeeeverywhere.

Aha, now this was mentioned on one of the xmas episodes of QI. Apparently it is a tradition and quite legit.

It`s always "the old country" that has the really f-dup Christmas traditions, so I`m guessing this is normal for that part of Europe.

Banksy is just looking at this thinking, "Why didn`t I think of that?"

I think I remember something like this being on a QI Christmas Special. The word for yule log translated to something like "crap log." It`s a rather scatological culture/language. Catalonia if memory serves. I can`t find the clip so I`m not sure.

"fake"

It`s so easy to sit there and say that. Could you elaborate a little bit? Why do you think it`s fake?

It`s Chad the abandoned elf! He was sent away from Santa`s toy factory due to gigantism. Since Santa doesn`t like non-conformists Chad elf has made it his life mission to seek vengence by literally dumping upon Christmas.
(Or he has the candycane-sh*ts...I dunno)
