If I had to dress like Buddy the Elf I'd drink to excess too.

Was the costume his? Or did the police department, in a mood of Yuletide festivity, provide the elf costume for each person's mug shot, just to keep the holiday spirit alive?

Or perhaps that was his sentence.

haappy holidays everyone.

He was dressing the Christmas tree with his brother and girlfriend? Must have been one hell of a big tree.


"Face the camera, Mr. Touch-et.'

"That's Tou-shay!"

"Have at you!"


I love holiday mugshots! They're just so Christmassy!

He's not Happy. Which one is he ?

His expression cracks me up. It's like "So, what's it to you? Can't an elf be left alone when he's having fun?"

When I think about you, I touch my elf.
