Babyrabies-elf-voteRemember way back on Monday when I posted about the brilliant "Inappropriate Elf" contest on Baby Rabies? Well, apparently, I inspired one of my readers to construct her own "Inappropriate Elf" scene but when she tried to follow the rules and create a tumblr page to submit it, things went screwy in only the way technology can.

If you regularly read my comment section, you might know this reader as "Kande". Kande emailed me the photo because she said she had nothing else to do with it and I told her I would be happy to post it on Mommy Shorts provided she splits her iPad 2 in half if she wins.

She said she already has an iPad 2 and if she wins, I can give it away to one of my readers.


The spirit of Chrismukkah is alive and well!

I would also like to add that Kande is somewhat concerned that people will find her photo extremely offensive. Psssh, I say. Did you see the abominable snowman taking pictures of a ball-gagged Santa???

But Kande's photo has more of a religious take and religious zealots can be an unfunny bunch. Her photo seems to suggest that the Elf on the Shelf (or the provincial wooden version of the Elf on the Shelf) is Jesus's actual father.

As a Jew, this is not offensive to me whatsoever.

There is one day left of voting and Kande's got a long way to go to catch up with the others. Vote for her here. She is entry #109 all the way down at the bottom.

Good luck, Kande!!!!
