Tiny plastic figures of Barack Obama and Gordon Brown relieving themselves in public have become online bestsellers.
They are among a host of politicians, sports stars and celebrities to be given the dubious honour of being turned into a 'caganer'.
Catalonians traditionally celebrate Christmas by placing a caganer, which translates as pooper, in a nativity scene.
People find it fun to try to spot the tiny defecating figures which are supposed to bring prosperity and a good harvest.
Traditionally, caganers would be small bearded men in full Catalan costume but these days, it's more likely to be a celebrity. Last year, Barcelona footballer Thierry Henry was the most popular figure sold.

Well, that wraps up my Christmas shopping! :)"Today, [the American voter] chooses his rulers as he buys bootleg whiskey, never knowing precisely what he is getting, only certain that it is not what it pretends to be." - H.L. Mencken
