We have the Elf On The Shelf (Clyde) at my house and my goodness is he a pain in the ass. Aside, as this comic illustrates (literally), from watching you bully your landing gear, he does provide a great service. As a kid, the prospect of a magical man sneaking into our house to leave us gifts was an intoxicating premise. Clyde takes it to a whole new level for my kids. You see, for those who don’t know, you have to move your elf around every night while your kids are asleep, so every single day is like a little miracle of Christmas. I suggest you get one…for the latter reason.

Monday, all day,
