You’ve called me Scrooge. That was probably fair. You’ve said I need to lighten up. You don’t even know the half of it. But friends, when it comes to the Elf on the Shelf, I am on solid ground. It’s not just me. A LOT of people find this little pixie just a creepy as me.
Exhibit A: People I want to Punch in the Throat Since its posting last Christmas, this piece has had more than two million views. Granted at least 50 thousand of them were me and my friends laughing hysterically, but that still leaves a whole lot more people who hate the little narc.
Exhibit B: The Atlantic Yes, indeed. Intellectuals even agree with me that this has just all gone too far. It’s weird. And I don’t like it.
And let me just say one more time for the record, I’M AFRAID OF THAT THING!
