The holiday season begins!

santa_ho_ho_hoCrop.gifIt may seem just a bad joke, but it is all too real. Santa (at least in Australia) has been forced to drop his signature laugh.

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.

Oh, St. Nick. Should have kept your pimp hand a little stronger.
