When I belonged to The Steampunk Empire, I had a puppet thread there, just checked, yep, it's still there if you're interested-
Maybe I have a God complex or something. Being in control.
Anyways, saw this, an interesting concept-
Star Wars characters as Wayang Kulit
KFC Christmas: Japan’s Holiday Chicken Tradition
And still in the spirit, I find this very amusing-
In France: Père la Colique ("Father Cholic"). In France this figure seems to date from the 1930s or 40s.
In Murcia, the region just south of the Valencian Country in Spain (where they are called cagones)
The Naples area, where it is known as cacone or pastore che caca
Portugal, where they are known as cagões
Possible translations of the caganer concept into other languages include:
In the Dutch/Flemish: Kakkers / Schijterkes ("Pooper"/"Little Pooper")
In German: Choleramännchen or Hinterlader ("Little Cholera Man" or "Breech-loader")'
