Executing Elves

by Findo on December 7th, 2010

Clearly, the best way to share the joy of the Saviour’s birth is to hang decorations…. by the neck until they are dead.

A Norwegian pastor, fed up with Christmas elves – a creature that he says “comes from the devil” has taken the rather extreme step of executing one outside his church.  If you’re going to go to all the trouble of stringing up an elf, you might as well invoke Godwin’s Law while you’re at it! The Copenhagen Post writes:

Knudsen said decorating with elves at Christmas was “comparable to decorating with Nazi flags”, and described elves of all sorts as “poltergeists that come from the devil and make children sick”.

Though, in fairness, Santa does appear to be a bit of an anti-semite.

I suspect the irony of hanging the elf next to the symbol of Roman execution is lost on the poor padre:

The sign reads: "we reject Satan and all his works and all his empty promises"
