Elf on the Shelf has come a long way from his humble beginnings in 1950s Japan.
In six decades, he's gone from cute and festive novelty toy to decadent and promiscuous sex prop with a penchant for porn and defecation.
Usually thought of as one of Santa's little helpers, like in the 2004 children's book by mother/daughter team Carol Aebersold and Chanda Bell, Elf on the Shelf was meant to simply oversee our children's behavior and then report back.
However, with the advent of social media, hashtags and our collective dirty minds, Elf on the Shelf has now traded the North Pole for the stripper pole.
Hashtag #naughtyelfontheshelf allows Instagram users to post revealing photos of this otherwise well-meaning elf in rather compromising positions. Clearly he doesn't mind.
SF Weekly has compiled some of the best entires. Join us for this rendition of "The Twelve Days of Christmas: Naughty Shelf Elf Style."
