Have yourself a messy little Christmas, I mean Merry...




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.

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.

You've gotta be fucking kidding me! Am I the only one that thinks this is going a little too far?

"Ha ha ha", just doesn't have the same ring to it. How to you change hundreds of years of tradition for a group of bitches with sticks up their asses? Next thing you know, people will be claiming that "ha ha ha" makes children feel bad and like they're being laughed at and will be changed to "he he he". A big fat guy in a red suit skipping down the street with candy canes, saying "he he he" just takes away my whole vision of Christmas. "Mommy? What's wrong with Santa?"

Give me a fucking break.

  6. I agree - this is ridiculous! I heard this on the news this morning, and thought, this is taking political correctness a bit too far. I think they jumped the shark.

  7. Anybody who thinks santa may be talking to them when he says "ho ho ho...." may have a guilty conscience. Maybe they are wondering if the guy under all the rubber and red was the guy with all the rubber in bed last night?

  8. Not to mention that here in Australia, the term "ho" is not in widespread use, so many people would not have heard of it (Jerry Springer viewers excepted).

  9. It's the secular progressive's war on Christmas! Alert the media!

    On O'Reilly! On Hannity! On Rush and On Fox! Get Coulter, and tuck her sack back like a box! The wiggles, Paul Hogan and Men at work too! Those austrailians are ruining Christmas, Boo hoo.
