Sure, it was a bruising election with plenty of smear campaign dirtiness. But this is too much.

Ceramic figurines of President Obama called caganers are pictured during their presentation in Gerona on Wednesday. Statuettes of well-known people defecating are a strong Christmas tradition in Catalonia, dating back to the 18th century as Catalonians hide caganers in Christmas Nativity scenes and invite friends to find them. The figures symbolize fertilization, hope and prosperity for the coming year.

This begs the question of what would have happened had he lost.

The tradition dates back to the 18th century and no public figure – from Pope to president – is safe from the treatment.
