Are you kidding me???????????? NWR
Posted: Nov 15, 2007 12:20 PM

I just read an article where SANTA is not going to be allowed to say "ho ho ho" anymore, because it is offensive to women.... WTF are you kidding me.....  They now want SANTA to say "ha ha ha", is that not going to be offensive to a child who may think SANTA is laughing at them...  What the hell is this world coming too, I am so disappointed in this world right now!!!!!!!!!

Any woman who is offended by Santa saying "ho ho ho" is a disgrace to our sex...and should promptly remove the oak-tree-sized stick from her ass.

Please - Santa was saying HO HO HO long before women began taking it as an insult. Anyone who takes a happy exclamation from Santa to be insulting has their mind in the gutter and is entirely too sensitive.

I would think the only women offended by that would be actual HO's and I doubt they're going to visit Santa...

What? No seriously, what? I really think my IQ might have dropped several points after hearing that. How stupid can people be, I mean really.

I saw that article as well, and I have the exact same reaction.  WTF!  I just don't get it, it's a sad sad thing when they're even picking on Santa now!

Thats pretty much THE dumbest thing I have ever heard. No wait.. how about last year when they changed the name of the tree in Boston from the Christmas Tree to the HOLIDAY TREE????!!! Like Ive said many many times, we are getting WAY too politically correct in this country, and its becoming insane.

In my standup routine I take classic XMas songs and rewrite them so they are politically correct. Sing along everyone... you know the words....

Oh Holiday Tree, Oh Holiday Tree, Youre Vague and Nonoffensive

Rudolph the multi-colored nonspecific animal of your choice, had a very shiny nonspecific anatomical part......

and my favorite: Frosty the Snowperson, was a Happy...but not happy like homosexual; not that theres anything wrong with that of course, to each their own... Jolly, but not jolly like fat because that would be wrong... soul. Unless of course you dont believe in souls then thats okay too.

I think the songs will catch on.

We are becoming a country of ...excuse me...politically correct pussies. Ohgee imm sorry, did I say pussies? Is that offensive?

AAAAAHHH!!!!!!!!!!!

I have heard of small group's of people who wanted it done, but not that it was actually happening. Maybe I am just clueless though . . .

People are getting too touchy but (to tie in the racism thread) people are okay about making some racist remarks! What is the world coming to?!

So what's dear ole Santa going to say now? Did it say in the article?

Kelley-
Along the lines of the Christmas tree, there was a huge controversy over the Christmas tree last year at the Sea-Tac airport. They will not be having one this year because a religious group said something about it.

Seriously, it's getting rediculous!

Some schools didn't allow Halloween parades last month....I don't remember why exactly but it seems like all the things that were not an issue 10 years ago are now becoming issues. It pisses me off....

Ok, I have to get this off my chest. It is a friggin CHRISTMAS tree. Why is it a CHRISTMAS tree?! Because CHRISTIANS are the people who put them up, not other religions. If you want, put up any other religious symbol, a menorah, the candle holder used for Kwanzaa (I apologize, I don't know it's exact name). But do not change the name, because it is a CHRISTMAS tree.

I will start calling it a holiday tree the same time a menorah becomes a winter candle holder.
