Christmas is coming, and our stores are already filling up with seasonal products like mince pies and even Christmas Cards .
But there is one thing parents around the world are dreading... the season of Elf on the Shelf is quickly approaching.
The Elf is based on a character in a 2005 children's book. He's a little figurine sold as a special "scout elf sent from the North Pole to help Santa Claus manage his naughty and nice lists". Parents are encouraged to move the Elf around overnight, so children are joyfully met with a new scene each morning.
The perfect reminder of omnipresent behavioural surveillance, kind of like a jolly Christmas version of 1984s Thought Police.
The growing Christmas tradition has gained huge popularity in the US and UK over the past few years, so it's only a matter of time until you also see an Elf on your Shelf.
For those thinking the process sounds like a lot of pressure and extra seasonal responsibility to bring joy, we agree, and sometimes, all you can do is laugh.
Which is precisely why these fantastic Elf on a Shelf Meme Puns on Twitter will be making parents laugh around the world.
Some of them took us a while to crack, so we decided to give you a hand and write the jokes out above.
