Ho Ho Ho! Are You Offended? Then Grow UP!

Shopping mall Santas in Australia are being told not to say "Ho, Ho, Ho." Someone might be offended.

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.

It's a good thing I'm not a Santa, I'm afraid that I would probably tell these PC goons to kiss my @$$!
