Caganerwatch 2014 - What Is A Caganer?
Shadow person

Caganers are small figurines traditionally placed in Catalan nativity dioramas. Here's an example of one: it's tucked into the background, in the bushes left of picture.



A caganer is a little man or woman, sometimes a famous personality such as Barack Obama, Angela Merkel or the current Pope. Often, it's a more traditional little man in peasant garb - brown trousers, shirt, red Phrygian cap.

But all caganers do two things; squat with backsides bared, and defecate.

"Caganer" is Catalan for "shitter," and it is a Christmas tradition to insert one caganer in every nativity play.

Translation

I have been given a task, to translate a document into Klingon. A transcript from a BBC radio show due to go out on October 20.

Thing is, I was told that it would only be the links. Not the entire bloody show.

Target: 25%. Achieved: 10%.

I think I've been a fan of this TV series for about three years now.

The Terracotta Dog, I must admit, is a particularly heartbreaking episode.
