If it feels like the holiday season seems to start earlier every year, here's more proof: it's September and people are already talking about Elf on the Shelf — but not in a way you'd ever imagine.

If you love (or hate) Elf on the Shelf, it's easy to create your own parody like the rest of the internet. Just come up with two random objects that rhyme and you're set to go. We're not sure these parodies embody the Elf on the Shelf spirit of encouraging good behaviour in kids, but hey, it might work. Check out some of our favourite parodies ahead.
