Santas warned 'ho ho ho' offensive to women

Wed Nov 14, 11:04 PM ET

Santas in Australia's largest city have been told not to use Father Christmas's traditional "ho ho ho" greeting because it may be offensive to women, it was reported Thursday.
Sydney's Santa Clauses have instead been instructed to say "ha ha ha" instead, the Daily Telegraph reported.
One disgruntled Santa told the newspaper a recruitment firm warned him not to use "ho ho ho" because it could frighten children and was too close to "ho", a US slang term for prostitute.
"Gimme a break," said Julie Gale, who runs the campaign against sexualising children called Kids Free 2B Kids.
"We are talking about little kids who do not understand that "ho, ho, ho" has any other connotation and nor should they," she told the Telegraph.
"Leave Santa alone."
A local spokesman for the US-based Westaff recruitment firm said it was "misleading" to say the company had banned Santa's traditional greeting and it was being left up to the discretion of the individual Santa himself.

I recall the word "carrot" being used in the book Lonesome Dove to mean penis. Will that mean that vegetarians now are drinking penis juice?

It ain't just air planes that are being hyjacked...

The song "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas" has been banned from being sung at a local bank's Christmas party. It seems that the "White Christmas" thing offended some minorities.

When do we get to be called "hupersons", ban giggling ("he-he-he") for being sexist, rename the "pussy willow"? Maybe we should burn dictionaries that contain words like "niggardly", "niggling" and "pussy" before we get the PC crowd apoplectic.
