Ho, Ho, Ho, Gangsta Christmas!

Christmas insanity: 'Ho, ho, ho' becomes 'Ha, ha, ha'

It all started when the recruitment firm Westaff – which has offices both in the United States and Australia – told its Christmas trainees that the "ho, ho, ho" phrase could frighten children and possibly be derogatory to women.

Surely you jest. Santa can't say, "Ho, Ho, Ho" anymore? Why don't we just ban talking? Get it over with, it's heading in that direction anyway. Next, we'll all have to wear masks so we don't inadvertently offend someone with a smile or a frown when they don't like it.

Actually, that wouldn't work because nobody would agree on what color they should be. Mandatory Botox injections starting in Kindergarten!
