Elf Yourself! Upload your picture to ElfYourself.com and watch you (or whomever's photo you upload - or watch me as a hip hop elf or as a soul elf) to dance around in a holiday scene. After doing this, you can get a free year-at-a-view calendar with your elfed photos. After you upload the photo/s, click on Let's Dance, and then click on the "get calendar" link in the upper right corner. You'll get a promo code to redeem for the calendar at OfficeMax (you have to go there to get it). $7 value, one per customer. (Check me out below!)
Speaking of funny, have you tried the free Hungry Santa app? You move Santa around to catch the treats falling from the sky. He gains weight as he eats them. Watch out for falling broccoli! My family is obsessed. Here it is on iTunes and Android.
