My god, if the child touches the elf he's done for?! Who invented this horrible thing?

"Sorry, Suzy, but the elf will never move again. You killed it, Suzy. You killed it with your touch."

WAAAAAAA Mommy don't touch me ever again Mommy or you'll die too! I can't touch my puppy or my hamster or my friends or Daddy or Grandma or they're all going to diiiiiieee!!!!

Holy crap, how many lives is this thing going to ruin?

I have and elf on a shelf given to me in the 1960's by my grandfather.It appears to be the same design with the same basic facial features. It is green and red instead of red and white.Does he have any value?

I would love to have a tea with you. My favorite are the imaginary cookies and cakes. Naja is a gracious hostess, can she come? Of course, Fuzzy Bear has to attend teas with her...

Yikes-stop that right now...I was trying to point out that girls are being raised to be gullible schizophrenics and this new toy will create paranoid schizophrenics.

You put real tea and cookies in her cup right now!

Truly, put something in it at least most of the time, pretend is good but too much pretend isn't.

"If a child touches him, he'll lose all of his magic, and he'll never move or do anything again," Emma explained.

In talking to my friend, she said this:

"Like Michael Jackson! All his talent and success disappeared after he f**ked kids! It turned him into a white woman/alien."

At least I thought it was funny.

I have the same Elf that was given to me by my Aunt & Uncle who lived in Baltimore! I don't remember a book or anything - it was used like a ribbon on our Christmas Package.
