Untitled-1-1

We’re taking a little break over the Christmas period to enjoy the festivities, but we’ll be back in the new year with plenty of weirdness and the launch of a brand new feature, “OddCast”.

We’ll leave you with something odd to bring up over Christmas dinner, but if that’s not enough be sure to look through our archives, where you’ll find over 100 juicy nuggets of weirdness. Happy holidays and thanks for reading.

“Shitting Log”

440cagatio

Caga tió or “the shitting log” is a Christmas tradition in Catalonia, Spain. Small wooden legs and a face are added to a hollowed out log, and beginning on December 8th each year, the log must be “fed” daily.

On Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, the log is beaten with sticks and ordered to “shit”, until small candies, fruits and nuts are pooped out.
