    Santas warned 'ho ho ho' offensive to women

    SYDNEY (AFP) - 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.

    "Gimme a break," said Julie Gale, who runs the campaign against sexualising children called Kids Free 2B Kids.

    "We are talking about little kids who do not understand that "ho, ho, ho" has any other connotation and nor should they," she told the Telegraph.

    "Leave Santa alone."

    A local spokesman for the US-based Westaff recruitment firm said it was "misleading" to say the company had banned Santa's traditional greeting and it was being left up to the discretion of the individual Santa himself.

    if they find it offensive, then they should stay away and keep their kids away. like parental control for tv.

    and while i am an american, i must admit we are very conceited. let's ban the word *** in england because it has a bad connotation here. in the famous words of john stossel..."GIVE ME A BREAK"

    alright, i guess it got filter. it is the word for a cigarette in england, rhymes with maggot (but just the first part, not the "got").
