Top Elf on the Shelf Memes

It’s Elf on the Shelf time.  Every year, parents around the world are putting elves on the shelves to watch the children and scare the hell out of them so they’ll be on their best behavior. These are Santa’s “scout” elves we’re talking about, and they report the children’s activities back to the North Pole. By the way, did you ever look up who made this wonderful Elf on the Shelf to begin with?
