It’s the moment some of us have been waiting for since we put away that sly little elf last year. Visions of inappropriate elf scenarios have been dancing through many of your heads for weeks or months.

Oh sure, these elves may help us persuade the children to behave between now and Christmas, but I’d argue they’re more effective at providing the grownups some much-needed comic relief between bedtime and breakfast throughout this chaotic season.

It seems our elf – Jake- has been watching a bit too much cable TV since last Christmas. He got into lots of TV-inspired mischief at our house recently.

Honey Boo Boo Elf greets the kids with a breakfast of Sketti and Go Go juice.

Spring Break Elf breaks into your liquor cabinet and does body shots off Barbie.

She Didn’t Know She Was Pregnant Elf presents you with a great opportunity to talk to the kids about unplanned pregnancy when she pushes out a baby in your bathroom.

Gangnam Style Elf will teach your kids to… be awesome… and call everyone “sexy.”

 What began as 5 Highly Inappropriate and Traumatizing Elf On The Shelf Ideas in 2011, has morphed into the hilarity that is the Annual Inappropriate Elf Contest, and now it’s your turn to play!

I can’t wait to see all the elves you’re going to link up below between now and December 18th at 11:59 p.m. CST when we will close entries and let our amazing panel of guest judges (to be announced soon) decide who takes home first prize (a Nikon 1 V2 mirrorless camera from Adorama!!) and second prize (an iPad mini from Passionfruit Ads!) from the top 10 elves, selected by the girls from HaHas for HooHas and me.

The 3 elves with the most votes/likes in the linkup will automatically make it into the top 10.

The elf with the MOST votes/likes- Fan Favorite- will automatically make it into the top 10, and win a Nintendo 3ds unless they win first or second prize. 

For more info on how the prizes will shake out in that case, and to read ALL THE RULES (which you’re REQUIRED to do before entering), head to the official 2nd Annual Inappropriate Elf Contest Rules Page. 

Then come back here to link up below! Voting doesn’t start until December 7th.

  1. Eeek! So excited! My kid is only two, and I was thinking she was too little for the elf, but I might get it just to do this, and then save it for next year. Awesome!

  3. I hope I’m not misunderstanding.. it seems clear that your blog can only enter one time and link up… however, what about the IG account? can we just play with that hashtag and post multiple? Or same rules apply.

  4. Alright. I’m confused. I created a tumblr account, attached the link on my photo entry, and even posted the link separately on tumblr…WHY isn’t it working for me?

  5. Yes perfect sense! I’ve been having fun on IG with it
    And using the hash tag so I just didnt want to screw up
    The contest

  6. I am having a really hard time figuring out how to add the backlink on my tumblr account. I have added a link back to the contest everywhere I can think of but on my forehead, and it still tells me I have not created a link back. Any advice? Place for a tutorial for blog dummies? TIA

  7. Oh my! I totally messed up LOL! I meant for my title to be “Take me away” and for some reason my photo is not showing up which obviously won’t get me anywhere in this contest. : / Please help!

  9. I’m confused as to how people “vote”. Is it the number of people that click through to this site from mine? If so, how can the friends I send over from Facebook vote? I consider myself fairly tech savvy, but feel quite the opposite right now!

    1. The developer has access to and is keeping an eye on ip addresses. Any activity that looks dishonest will be questioned, and that picture may be DQd.

        1. Technically, I think the system allows for multiple votes. I’m okay with people voting for more than one elf, or voting for themselves once a day, but the developer is keeping an eye on IP addresses for me, and if we get suspicious that someone is stuffing their votes, that pic will be in danger of a DQ. Simply: Play fair 🙂

        1. Here’s the deal: I’m having a really busy week with family things, and Christmas stuff. So I realize some are rule breakers, but I haven’t had time to police them all. And it’s not necessary for you to point them out. They will not end up in the top ten, not even if they get the most votes.

  10. How do I backlink? I’ve done all there is to do but it still says I didn’t add the link back to this site. Help!

  11. I just wanted to thank you for hosting this contest. It has brought huge smiles to my face. I love seeing what mischief other people’s elves are getting into. So thanks for helping spread a lot of Christmas, (Holiday) Cheer

  12. So sorry I messed up my entry, can you erase number 118? I forgot to link back to you in my tumblr post. Please and thank you.

  14. Didn’t double check the rules and submitted two, I removed the post for #119 (Semi HoHoHomemade elf) hoping it’d void the link, but it didn’t. Please delete it! Sorry!

  15. Don’t cave in just due towards the fact one does not earn proper away. Today, people prefer webcam modeling as an alternative to several other modeling jobs. Alessandra Torre: I happen to be a bookworm since age eight.

  • Those sleepy eyes 😍 He was channeling his inner koala. @sandiegozoo
  • Is there anything sweeter than a baby who learns to wave hi and then greets every single person, car, dog, and tree with a smile? #wallaceaustin
  • These two are #brothergoals ❤️❤️ Also? @kampgroundsofamerica jumping pillows are Playground #GOALS
  • Oh. Ok, handsome. 😍
  • There are so many fresh faces here, and I’m thrilled! My 15 month old is currently napping ON ME so I thought I’d use this as an opportunity to introduce myself and share more about Baby Rabies to you newcomers. 🤗 👋🏻 I’m Jill Krause, mom of 4 (nearly 10 year old son Kendall, 7 year old daughter Leyna, 4.5 year old son Lowell- we call him LoLo a lot, and 15 month old son Wallace). I’m married to Scott, my college sweetheart- MIZZOU 🐯 👶

Baby Rabies is what happens when your baby fever is incurable. And that’s what happened to me 11 years ago when I bought BabyRabies.com and decided to blog anonymously about my secret and sudden obsession with conceiving my first baby. 👬🤱 The logo is a play on a positive pregnancy test, but we love and embrace all kinds of families and caregivers around here, no matter how they came together. 💖

It is my greatest wish that this space is inclusive and supportive and uplifting, without feeling sanctimonious or void of humor. We don’t take ourselves too seriously. We are always open to improving ourselves, but perfection is never the goal. 🏞

I’m currently traveling the country in an RV with my husband and 4 kids. We sold our dream house last year to find our dream life. We are documenting that at @happy.loud.life So if you see pictures pop up and wonder why we spend so much time in an RV or why our baby has, like, 4 outfits, or why we seem to go on a ton of vacations- that’s why. 😆 ❓

Are you new here? I’d love if you’d introduce yourself below! ✨
  • I could hug whoever invented the puddle jumper floaties. Kids have no idea the torture we endured with blow up floatie wings back in the day. I can still smell the plastic and hear the awful noise they made when you had to take them off after you got wet.
  • Spring training for summer starts now. 🌞
  • Pic unrelated, but it's a cute baby and the thing I want to tell you about is super relevant if you're into babies! Tonight is the countdown to make sure you name is in for the over $3000 in awesomeness that one lucky someone is going to get! Follow the link in our bio before midnight tonight to see what's up! 🙌🏻❤️⬅️
