Ch-ch-ch-chia! I need help thinking up a holiday joke. [More:]We have a Yankee Swap (Pollyanna/Dirty Santa/White Elephant) gift exchange at my office every year. For a couple of years, it's been a joke to wrap up this dumb Chia Scooby Doo that we had kicking around the office. LAst year I actually volunteered to have this as my gift because I wanted to take it out of commission. Even when you're a good sport, it sucks to get Scooby Chia and not one of the actually decent gifts. But I wanted to keep the joke alive somehow so Scooby Chia can continue to be part of our holiday celebration. I thought about growing out his chia coat and using him as some kind of centerpiece for holiday food. That'd be fun, but any other great ideas?
Make him the office's "Elf on the Shelf": dress him up, and have him move around daily post-Thanksgiving up until Christmas?

I like that. You don't need a lot of dress up -- you could just wrap a red and green scarf around his neck and perhaps add a "gift" label reminding people of the date/time of the exchange.

Did you keep the box? I think it'd be funny to re-use the box with a better present inside. Don't reveal the switch until the end so that the person who thinks they got screwed finds out they actually got the best of it.

Or even keep the Chia Scooby in the box but stick a gift card underneath.

If you are in a more destructive mood, you could smash it and plant a few chia seeds on the inner hollow of each little broken piece, and then glue to cardboard to make a card for each person in the office that has a bit of scooby on it.
