Hilarious gallery: “Elf on the Shelf” behaving badly

Are you familiar with Elf on the Shelf?  Me either…until recently.

If you’re not up to speed, here’s the rundown. Elf on the Shelf is a Christmas book that comes with a toy elf. The idea is to put the elf somewhere (a shelf??) where they can watch the kids between Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve and report their behaviour back to Santa.

It allows for much, MUCH creative fun because the elf, who remains lifeless around humans, is said to come to life when no one is around and in some homes, gets up to some pretty serious mischief.

Here are some of our fave snaps….some are probably not kid-friendly, but they are so, SO funny.
