Elf On the Shelf Just Got Even Creepier
If you live under a rock, you may not have heard of Elf on the Shelf. When I first found out about him, I was in shock because we grew up with a few of those very same elves decorating our house at Christmas and I have to say, they were and still are incredibly creepy to me.
It makes me a little sick to have the f-er on my blog. The things I do for my readers.
The whole concept of the Elf on the Shelf is to scare the bejeezus out of your kids so they behave for the whole Christmas season. Every night, he moves to a new location and he's always "watching" the kids. If they misbehave, you just tell them that "he's watching" and they apparently straighten right up.
I guess that the centuries of telling kids that Santa was watching them wasn't really working. Hard to believe an invisible man could see them and wreak havoc if they misbehaved, right? So, someone took it up a notch and created a spy who sits right in your house to watch. And who wouldn't behave with that wretched perve watching your every move?
I'm just really disappointed that I didn't think of it first. I spent how many Christmases having to look at those creepy elves just sitting there, their arms wrapped around their ridiculously long legs, their way too perky eyes just watching me, kind of sidewise? And it never occurred to me I could cash in on that and spend eternity getting rich off of scaring little kids???
And what a perve he is. Just check out what happens over at Elf Shaming. If you find him as creepy as I do, this will make you feel vindicated because even though he's watching people as they take these pictures, he can't do a damned thing about it!
I found out about Elf Shaming thanks to Anna over at My Life And Kids. She's hysterical anyway, but you need to go see how she shamed her elf this week and add one of your own!
