This Week’s Sign that the Apocalypse is Upon Us


You had to see it coming after that Imus flap: Santa’s Laugh has been banned. That’s right, is reporting that Santas in Australia are being trained in the fine art of not offending:

Santas across Sydney, Australia, are rebelling against attempts to ban their traditional greeting of “ho, ho, ho” in favor of “ha, ha, ha.”

Recruitment firm Westaff — which supplies hundreds of Santas across the country — has told its trainees that the “ho ho ho” phrase could frighten children and could even be derogatory to women.

Two Santa hopefuls reportedly quit the course because of the hullabaloo of the ho, ho, ho.

One would-be Santa has told The Daily Telegraph he was taught not to use “ho, ho, ho” because it was too close to the American slang for prostitute. He also quit.

No news yet if any prostitutes are suing for copyright infringement nor whether these Santas are charging prostitutes advertising fees. This is hilarious. Next thing you know, someone will try to ban Santa from wearing red because it offends the monsters that live outside the Village!


PS-I can’t believe this is news.
