We're about halfway through with the candidates for the Ninot Indultat! Today: 3rd Category (so groups spending roughly between 10'000-15'000 for an entire Hoguera)!
I think I'll start off with one obviously dedicated to all the harried working mothers out there, I'm sure a lot of them would recognise themselves (at some point) in this representation:

Another one that's definitely making a statement:

Crisis? What crisis? (ask the sign at the bottom) The TP rolls say things like "mortgage" "car loan" and "electricity bill".
Now the term "loan shark" doesn't translate literally to Spanish, but if it did this guy would surely fit the bill!
|Ninot Hoguera Altozano Sur Las Plazas. Artista: Santiago Ferrer Vicent|
I looked all over and he doesn't have a dorsal fin, so not a shark... but still, this is definitely not a face to trust (or maybe he's just really upset with BP...)!
Continuing the marine motif (I'm sure Rhonda from the Tikki Hut is going to love this one, full of seashells!):
|Ninot Hoguera Florida Plaza La Viña. Artista: Carlos Albaladejo Rodríguez|
Now there's an elegant seahorse! Very regal head:
but this little fellah on the bottom gets the last laughs! :p
To wrap up the "big guys", a funky dragon!

And for the kids, I don't know if there's a man in the moon, but there appears to be a kid settling in for "sweet dreams":
|Ninot H.Infantil Rabassa. Artista: David Sánchez Igualda|
She doesn't need her beauty sleep, does she?

And finally, a tale of prickly love! ;o)
