Listen, elf. I know this job of yours is stressful this time of year. Parents are putting a lot of pressure on you to perform. They want you to MAKE MAGIC with cotton balls, sugar cubes, and dry erase markers!

They want you to make the kids believe in you so much that they can be stopped mid-meltdown in the aisles of Target with the mere mention of your “name.”

And sometimes it’s a really freaking ridiculous name.

“Sparkles the Elf is going to tell Santa you weren’t good today if you don’t stop that right now!”

“Sparkles”??? For fucks sake, your name is Adam. I get it. It’s enough to drive you to drink and take some pills.

You’ve reached your breaking point. You’ve considered all the ways out.

And then you just gave up and went wild.

This same approach happened over and over with elves across the world….

ending in some unintended consequences for a few.

But now it’s really caught up to you, elf. I’m so sorry to tell you that Santa just informed me you’ve been demoted.

I have no idea what your new job will be, but here are a few examples of what’s happened to some of your inappropriate co-workers.

He spends his days trying to figure this out for once and for all. Until then, he has to play the song on repeat. He twitches in his sleep, screaming out “Ring ding ding ding er WHAT DOES IT SAY?!” until he wakes in a cold sweat.

No more Marshmallow Mondays at the Candy Cane Bar. No more Fa La La La Fridays, throwing snowballs with the guys. Now it’s just a job of pushing paper in a cubicle next to this guy. The elf is equal parts terrified and curious to know how and why Santa removed his antlers.  It’s obvious that office work leads to bad posture and humps on your back. It’s rough, man. Rough.

He’s responsible for sanitizing her foam finger and wrecking ball. I think that’s all you need to know.

Minutes after this picture was taken, Ford took a cue from this Inappropriate Elf  and peed his own name in the snow right outside the window of a children’s hospital as a holiday party went on inside. Then he told Matt Lauer he can’t be blamed because he was too wasted to remember. Apparently, he spiked the kids’ punch… then drank it all while his elf was passing out presents.

I sure hope you find yourself in a much more tolerable job, elf. Because, like I said, I get it. I can see why you and countless other elves get a little inappropriate this time of year. Maybe Santa will let you go to rehab instead? I’ll see what we can work out.

************

I have a feeling this isn’t going to deter the other elves from getting into a little trouble this year, though. So let’s see what they’re up to. Are you ready to submit a picture of your inappropriate elf?

First, MAKE SURE YOU READ THE RULES. 

Here’s what’s on the line.

InappropriateElfPrizes13

You have until 11:59 pm CST on December 18th to link up your elf picture. After that, HaHas for HooHas will help me narrow down the top 10, and a panel of guest judges (yet to be announced) will vote to determine the top 2.

I’ll announce the winner on December 23rd. More details and dates can be found in the rules. 

Follow the directions in the Linky Tools below. Good luck, and may the elves be ever in your favor!

  1. <--- Not computer savey, but would like to submit an entry. I made a tumblr account posted the picture and still cant seem to figure out the backlink... Help please

  3. I am not going to debate about it you extended your event then two of the photos that were add after the original deadline are in your top ten. Also if you click their blog there is most def. a video. You can’t prove that it is not from google so the image is suspect. This all seems sketchy to me and a lot of people I have talked to making you “contest” to fixed.

  • 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! 🙌🏻❤️⬅️
  • "And some people say they can’t go biking because they have too many kids. I guess 4 is the limit...for now! 😀" How awesome is this snapshot from @cabinfeverbus?
  • We are doing some RV improvements and have a giant roll of this reflective stuff laying around. New fav photo back drop 😆 Also,  Lowell is such a big kid these days. 😓 #loloyolo #wallaceaustin
  • Shout out to @siblingrevelryproject on this National Siblings Day. Photographer @ewmcguire celebrates and documents these incredible bonds all year long. Such a beautiful account to follow. ❤️ #siblingrevelryproject
  • This was my husband when he realized he didn’t get enough food for the week on his grocery run. I feel like my fellow #LitterOfChildren parents can relate, right? #ThingsParentsActuallySay
