Is the Threat of Coal on Christmas Morning...

No longer incentive enough to be good?  Apparently not.  Now we have:

This elf perches himself conspicuously near a child's play area so he can take notes and report various grievances about the child's behavior back to Santa each night.  I bet this is how employees feel when people from "corporate" come to visit. Oh sure, he looks pleasant enough but all elves are a bit creepy with the exception of Will Ferrell.  My kids are too young to understand the impending threat a pint-sized tattletale poses, but I'll give it a try next year.  In the meantime, I think I'll put him on my dresser and see if my behavior improves.

  1. Oh, ew. I haven't seen this before. And you know, it's not even a slightly chunky harrassed-looking elf with a clipboard, which I might be able to handle. It's the "cherubic" kind that looks like he has a very unnerving secret that might involve his basement.

    I"m just threatening my kids with the old stand-bys, things like "if it's too hard to pick up your toys, I'll just throw them all away." Let's see an elf top that!
