Forget Elf on the Shelf, Try Lannister on a Bannister

It’s not truly the holiday season until a bunch of parents take to social media complaining about having to come up with new and creative ways to display the Elf on the Shelf, Santa’s “scout” who keeps an eye on your kids to ensure they are behaving in the weeks before Christmas. But why put yourself through that arduous nightly task when you can use a far more effective deterrent to keep your children in line, one you don’t have to worry about moving yourself. Because this year, the only way to guarantee your kids don’t end up on the naughty list is with a Lannister on the Bannister.

Jimmy Kimmel says the Elf on the Shelf is tearing his family apart because he keeps forgetting to move it, so he has a replacement option based on Game of Thrones. Because what better way is there to keep your family together than by threatening them with their own Red Wedding if they don’t.

It’s probably not a great idea to threaten your kids with dismemberment, but letting Jaime Lannister scare them with the possibility of losing a hand definitely will put the fear of the old gods and the new in them. But if you do invite Nikolaj Coster-Waldau into your house, you might want to hide the mistletoe…especially if mom looks like Cersei.
