No more Ho-Ho-Ho

Sure, I am jumping the gun on Christmas here but Australians are far ahead of me with their attempted ban of the popular Santa greeting "Ho-Ho-Ho". The reasoning is that Australian children are a bunch of scared-ass pansies and that those oh-so delicate Australian women might be offended by the Ho-Ho-Ho greeting.

This from a country founded by a bunch of exiled English prisoners. They ought to be the last ones to consider Ho-Ho-Ho too close to the American slang for prostitute being that many of their descendants may very well have been prostitutes. I'll just say it, Australians are weird. They have bizarre animals such as Kangaroos and the water goes down the drain in the wrong direction (according to an episode of "The Simpsons").

I so agree with the Dr. in the article who said this is, "...the latest example of political correctness gone mad."
