Here comes the Christmas season. Here comes that annoying elf that sits around the house watching the kids to see who makes the naughty and who makes the nice list.


Leave it to a Georgia judge jokingly banning the Elf on a Shelf. Well, maybe jokingly. I think he did it because he has a little girl at home who talked him into it. But that's just speculation on my part.

Taking to Twitter, Cobb County Superior Court Chief Judge Robert Leonard offered parents a "gift" to remove the iconic Elf, who is traditionally moved throughout the home to determine whether a child has been naughty or nice, from this year's decorations. (Fox News).

Is Santa Above The Law?

Santa does break into houses, all over the world, every year. So he is a repeat offender.

It doesn't matter that he's dropping stuff off. Breaking and entering for any reason is illegal.

And what about these SPIES he has in our homes? Were they invited in? Perhaps if the parents invited that little snitch elf, maybe. But we can assume the elf is around even when not invited because - SANTA KNOWS!

That brings us to the charge of SPYING in people's homes and in their personal affairs. Who knows what that fat voyeur sees. WOW! Santa is into some nefarious crap.

"Tired of living in Elf on the Shelf tyranny? Not looking forward to the Elf forgetting to move and causing your kids emotional distress? I am a public servant and will take the heat for you. My gift to tired parents," Leonard said in a tweet.

"Inexplicably, Elves sometimes move and don't move overnight. When those Elves do not move, it leaves our children of tender years in states of extreme emotional distress," the judge continued.

The judge then cited elven "tyranny" and a "horrific incident" involving an Elf in his own home.

I wonder - is anyone going to sue Santa for roof damage?
