No more ‘hos’ for Santa?
Australian newspaper The Daily Telegraph is reporting that Santas in Sydney, the country’s biggest city, have been told not to use the “Ho, Ho, Ho” greeting because it may be offensive to women.
One wannabe Santa told the newspaper a recruitment firm had warned him not to use the traditional expression, because it could “frighten children” and was “too close to ‘ho’, a US slang term for prostitute.”
He was instructed to use “Ha, Ha, Ha” instead.
Is this political correctness gone crazy?
