Ha ha ha!

That's what Santas in Sydney, Australia are being asked to bellow from now on. Doesn't sound quite right, does it? Maybe it's because we've heard the traditional "ho ho ho" from Santas since, well, forever. Maybe it's because the feeling that "ho ho ho" is too close to the slang word for a prostitute is a little far-stretched. Or the notion that little kids are going to make that connection is completely ridiculous.

This is taking the whole concept of being politically correct a little too far, isn't it? What this does prove is that some people (like the ones who came up with this bright idea) have a little too much time on their hands. "Leave Santa alone," stated a woman in The Daily Telegraph article. I completely agree... and while you're at it, leave me alone too!
