    Apparently, in Australia, Santa is now offensive to women...

    SYDNEY (AFP) - 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 don't see the problem.
    Santa doesn't like Ho's anyway, he likes to play with elves.

    Wow.
    I cannot even begin to fathom the depths of stupefying craziness required for someone to consider that idea to be anything but absurd.
    And I'm 95.67% insane!

    That is one of the most politically corrected loads of bullshit i have seen in a long time. But i suppose he is giving the children "holiday presents" and wishing "happy holidays" when it should be "Christmas presents" and Merry Christmas." If you dont like this country just get the hell out. Apparently they are left-wingizing Australia now too. Disappointing.


    VikesFan787, Thanks for the awesome sig!
