Help me find a pooping log online.

Thanks to Anthony Bourdain, after an entire life of ignorance I now know about the Catalan traditions of Tió de Nadal ("pooping log") and Caganer.

But I can't find either available online for purchase in the US anywhere! Is my google-fu no good, or is my only option to take a trip to Catalan to purchase my pooping log? Hope me!

Here's a recent FPP about caganer. It looks like caganer.com, as linked several times in that post, will ship to the US.

Searching under "caga tio" brings up this item on Amazon.

There is probably no stranger consumer product available anywhere in the world than this [link contains owl buttocks].

Thank-you!

Maybe not the answer you want, but this site says they just paint the face on a log from outside. I really like the idea of Caga Tio "growing" every few days as you feed it.
