Threatening Christmas

Having a hard time getting the little ones into the Christmas spirit? Elf on a Shelf is here to save the day!

Just remember: Don't get them wet and never, ever feed them after midnight.

Gremlins are cute, but that elf is already giving me nightmares. If they really wanted to make it scare the kiddos into good behaviour, the head would start twisting back and forth, faster and faster while green jello spewed from its mouth, all controlled of course from a sophisticated remote control.

Now that, my friends, I would pay $30 bucks for.

"a clever way to encourage kids' behavior."

Indeed. But if you're going to outright lie to a kid with the goal of enforcing the rules, why go with this half-baked approach? With only a little more imagination you can get your kids to think you yourself are omniscient for the first three or four years of their lives.


PS: Gauntlets, if Rev. Gauntlets has gone missing for a few days, don't wait until it smells like a dead squirrel before you check the chimney.
