From the Telegraph: “A ceramic figurine of Michael Jackson defecating is seen at a market in Barcelona, Spain. Caganers – statuettes of well-known people defecating – are a Christmas tradition in Catalonia, dating back to the 18th century. Catalonians hide caganers in Christmas Nativity scenes and invite friends to find them. The figures symbolise fertilisation, hope and prosperity for the coming year.” Yup, you learn something new every day.

FREE COMEDY SHOW IN LA this Friday, with me, Joe King, TJ Miller, Mark Ellis, Jodi Miller, Michelle Nunes, and Alejandro Ansoleaga. Come on out and support. Support DEEEZ NUTS, I mean.
