“Santas warned ‘ho ho ho’ offensive to women”

With the holiday season rapidly approaching, and by the way, don’t you just hate how they start pushing Christmas even before Halloween these days? What could be more appropriate than this little tidbit from “down under”?

I’m all for tact, but this “political correctness” stuff is just way over the edge for me. WHEN did people start feeling they had some inalienable right to never be offended? Better yet, why should a centuries old tradition be altered just because some fool chose to shorten the word ‘whore’ to ‘ho’?

This is just as bad as having to say ‘Happy Holiday’ instead of ‘Merry Christmas’. Why can’t people just accept the greeting in the manner it is given without attaching some kind of offense to it? I don’t get offended if someone wishes me a ‘Happy Hanukah’

    What a joke! What a sad, sad joke. Where is Bill Maher and when will his politically incorrect program take hold.
