No! Not Elf on a Shelf!

As my good friend, Ruth, knows after my reaction to her post about her resident porcelain dolls, I am not a fan of creepy toys. Who in their right mind thought one that moves around and spies on you isn’t terrifying?

I cannot find the original source for this wonderful idea anywhere.

After stumbling across this picture, I felt it was an excellent time to bring back -throwback- Snappy McSprinkles.

      Yes! I loved the colored envelope. ๐Ÿ˜€ And the card of course. If I get to cards, they’ll be for Valentine’s Day at this rate!

    The word gross doesn’t begin to describe that image!

    Those elves are creepy though…

      ๐Ÿ˜€ That would’ve been great to slip in there. Next time, I’ll try to remember that one!

      ๐Ÿ˜€ Don’t worry; that can’t be anatomically correct.

    I went on vacation in Idaho recently, and they had an elf on the shelf in the hotel… all the kids were way too rowdy looking for it because they offered a free candy bar or something to the ones who found it.

      I just don’t understand why kids like it. I would’ve been terrified as a child.

    Amusing; however, the image, utilizing (what appear to be) chicken bones, actually made me feel nauseous. … I’m not vegetarian, though I seldom eat ‘meat’ but do eat prawns or shrimp pretty much on a weekly basis.
