Looks like OfficeMax is bringing back Elf Yourself for the holiday season (here’s David Lubars getting Elfed last year), but they’re not forgetting the curmudgeons this year. In fact, they’re openly inviting you, the consumer, to (groan) Scrooge Yourself. I have to say, the novelty of uploading my face onto a Flash-animated marionette is beginning to fade, especially when the only thing I can do afterwards is pass it around the Internet like the Ghost of Christmas Mono. Why can’t I do something cool with my Scrooge, like kick crutches out from under the arms of Tiny Tim Yourself avatars? There’s next year’s project, OfficeMax!
