Kill Your Child's Elf on a Shelf in the Name of 'Science'

Shelby Rogers

Parents either love or loathe their child's Elf on a Shelf, that mysterious Christmas doll that 'moves' during the night to be found by kids the next morning. Now that Christmas season is over, one YouTube channel suggests not boxing your cutely-named elf back up into storage.

The What's Inside? channel dissected the elves to "see what they're made of." Uh huh, sure. The best part of this video has got to be the kid portion of the What's Inside duo. He clearly looks mortified that an elf would be decapitated and unable to visit the North Pole ever again.
