Trevor shared a fun story with me about a phone call that went about as close to this comic as I can recall. I absolutely hate that stupid elf, I hate the message it teaches kids, and I hate that it’s a “Holiday Tradition.” It’s inspired a lot of awful knock off novelty toys, thousands of tired memes, and the new, terrible “You’ve heard of Elf on a Shelf, have you seen the new BLANK on a BLANK?” Facebook craze.
…and it’s barely October. Get ready for 3 months of this garbage…
