No "ho ho ho" for you
Just when I thought I had seen it all, along comes this ridiculous story out of the AFP: "Santas Warned 'ho ho ho' Offensive to Women." Apparently, a company in Australia has told its Santas that they should say "ha ha ha" instead so as not to offend any sensitive women (or sensitive anyone else) out there. After all, "ho" could be taken to mean the certain slang. What do I say to that company? Get over yourselves and take a fucking chill pill. How ridiculous is this? Do people honestly think that children are going to think anything other than Santa is being jolly and laughing when they hear "ho ho ho?" How many women will actually feel offended at Santa's mirth? Let the jolly one laugh to his heart's content. And enjoy the holiday folks. Leave the PC crap to those who have nothing better to do. Better yet. Tell them to get over it.
