The West kids take their Elf on a Shelf very, very seriously. And they should! The scout elves report directly to Santa, after all. However, it sounds like Saint West broke the cardinal rule of Elf on a Shelf on Dec. 19: no touching!

Kim Kardashian took to her Instagram Stories to reveal that Saint had touched his elf, and North‘s reaction was nothing short of hilarious. All kids know that Christmas magic is very fragile, and if you touch your scout elf, it might lose its magic abilities to move around and cause mischief while the family is sleeping. Apparently, North figured that “losing his magic” meant the elf was… well… dead.

“Saint touched his Elf on a Shelf so North just brought this in,” Kim captioned the pic, which features the elf laying in front of a handmade grave. The tombstone even comes complete with a skull-and-crossbones, and “R.I.P.” written on the front. We honestly don’t know if we should be impressed… or concerned. But one thing’s for sure: we can’t stop laughing.

Luckily, it doesn’t sound like they’ll actually have to hold a funeral for the elf. The official Elf on a Shelf website says that you have a few options for reviving an elf that has been touched, including writing an apology letter to Santa, giving the elf energizing cinnamon, or singing a holiday carol to make him feel better. See, North, no need to get so dark!
