There's that elf again...

Day 17: Elf on the Shelf - adorable childhood tradition or creepy stalker?  Discuss

This prompt made me chuckle.  I already discussed my thoughts on this here.  The more pictures I see the more I want to chuck that elf in the trash.  Here are my thoughts on some of the pictures I have seen on my Facebook (so these are people I know...I worry about my friends...haha).

Wow, your elf unrolled an entire roll of toilet paper...that's not wasteful and you get to clean it up...

Ok, so your elf is pretending to poop on cookies...how is that teaching your child to behave?

Wow, you attached your elf to the ceiling fan...whose going to untangle the sting that gets caught in it?

Your elf is pretty inappropriate to be in a "hot tub of candy" with a girl doll...isn't he supposed to be kid friendly?

I just read up on what the concept of the elf is.  The elf is supposed to watch the children all day and fly to the North Pole and report to Santa each night.  He is then supposed to reappear in a different spot each morning.  The kids are not allowed to touch it because he is magical.  Yeah, I am going to go with creepy.  We will stick to good ole fashioned naughty and nice list.  haha.

  1. I think adults would have more fun with the elf than kids would. ;-)

  3. I think the Elf would have been fun to play around with, but it is just teaching kids how to be naughty I think....

    1. Yes, it seems to have backfired on children.
