    It started a few years ago, and is now starting to catch on. Here's how it works:

    You set the Elf up every night, and then before your child wakes up, you move the Elf to a new spot. The idea is that every night the he goes back to the North Pole and reports to Santa how your child behaved that day. People are yelling that it's a form of terrorism, but it's fun for kids to try and find where the Elf ended up every morning. Harmless fun, IMO.

    The Elf comes with a book that you can read to the kids, explaining how the whole thing works, and you have them name the Elf and there's some sort of certificate you can print out online.

    Really wish I would have thought of the idea. What a fucking moneymaker that has to be.

    Never heard of it, but that's cute.
    Anything that lets kids still be kids is good with me.

    Do you ever shut the fuck up?
    You're so acrid and humorless.
    Does the term "water seeks it's own level" ring true to you?
