The Elf on the Shelf.....

.... Can go fuck himself.

I need to let it be said that I can not stand "The Elf on the Shelf". Can not stand it. The face on those little things is just creepy. The story is even a little creepier. Supposedly this little spy is Santa's lookout to if you have been naughty or nice. Um....ok. What a little narc! And the expression on this little dude's face? It reminds me of a scary, overly caffeinated 1950's advertisement for some sort of wholesome foodstuff. {shudder}

The premise behind the "game" is kinda creepy too. Parents are supposed to move the elf after the kids have gone to sleep at night so that when the little ones wake, they think the elf moved on it's own in a bid to get covert information on their naughty & nice activities, thus encouraging more nice than naughty behavior! (Guess the elf hasn't checked out Mommy's bedside "special" drawer yet.) Yes, I know it's supposed to be cute and a tradition for the whole family for generations, but really? It just messes with my head. Creepy doll moving around the house in the dead of night, maniacally smiling his grin of death... NOT FOR ME!!

So no.... the Elf on the shelf can go fuck himself, cause I will not partake of his freaky lil' self!
