Best Dad Ever Turns Himself Into an Extra Naughty Elf on the Shelf

It's now safe to say that Elf on the Shelf has become a Christmas tradition for families everywhere, with parents hiding this little guy in nooks and crannies for their kids to find each day leading up to Christmas.

However, it's not all sugarplums and candy canes. Sometimes things go awry, and the little bugger gets sneaky ideas. One of the best unsavory "reappropriations" of the tradition comes from Canadian couple Joe and Megan Wynberg, who decided to one-up their friends who'd been posting funny Elf on the Shelf pictures on Facebook every day.

If it were an actual competition, the Wynbergs would certainly take home the prize. Check out Joe Wynberg as a life-size Elf named FLE (or "elf" backwards,) engaging in all sorts of hilarious antics around the house.

So we finally caved and decided to do the "Elf on the Shelf" thing. The kids are going to be so surprised! We named our elf FLE and he will be in some pretty precarious spots over the next 24 days! Enjoy.

Day 1

Well, day one, and I am not sure about this "Elf on the Shelf" thing. FLE ate the kids advent calendars, they will be devastated!

Day 2

FLE is out of control! I need to find my receipt. Couldn't handle those advent calendars he ate last night. Today is the second after all!

Day 3

Because picking up after four kids isn't enough! FLE was pretty exited about the first snowfall of the year and I'm pretty sure he pee'd on the floor. I'm getting rid of this thing!

Day 5

So FLE has been trying to get in the house all day. Then I found him doing this. I may have to bring him back in before the neighbours call the cops.

Day 6

So we got our tree up and decorated with the kids today. And then FLE tried to get in the tree like his other "Elf on the Shelf" buddies.

Day 7

I brought in re-enforcement to get FLE the "Elf on the Shelf" under control.

Hilarious! A little creative parenting goes a long way. Just look at the smiles on their children's faces:
