With Christmas soon approaching, the makers of caganers (small ceramic statuettes that feature the figure squatting and defecating) are back with more delightful shit or figurines. An essential part of the Christmas crèche in Catalonia, caganers show us an amusing side of the festival and “symbolize fertilization, hope and prosperity” for the new year. Last year, we showed you a couple of our players in action, this time around Pique is accompanied with Shakira, who heads to the loo with what looks like a microphone? With regards to Barca’s new signings, we feel that Alexis Sanchez doesn’t quite cut the mark, while Cesc Fabregas is worth the buck for the tattoos and hair, which looks far better here than in real life. See them and Valdes, who looks like a monk, after the jump.
