Okay, so maybe Bill O'Reilly is on to something...

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.

In related news, the elf union is asking Santa to stop referring to the diminished-height workers as his "bitches."

This made me laugh. Thanx Bil, I needed that!

Well at least 2 of us found it funny! *grins*

They really may be onto something... santa's outfit combines the best of Hefs' pajamas and classic pimpwear what with all the fur and velvet. And you just know that Mrs Claus is in on it too.

OMG! Mike, that is too funny!

Thanks for posting this Bil, it's the perfect way to start my Friday!

Wow! Someone has been reading my mind!

After Alex introduced me to the expression "'mo" I've been having compulsive fantasies of certain theatrical men in red fat-suits --- who during any other season of the year would simply be called "bears" --- standing on certain city street corners, dodging snow flurries, ringing little silver bells over red buckets, and as pedestrians walk by loudly laughing, "Ho! Ho! Ho! ... 'Mo! 'Mo! 'Mo!" ... meaning "There goes another three Ladies of the Evening! ... There goes another group of those 'Funny Boys' on their way back from Home Depot!"

Just think ... the act could get staged all the way from Times Square in NYC to less famous locales, such as the Irvington neighborhood of Indianapolis! ... but it would probably be the most kitsch when seen right outside the sliding glass doors of Wal-Marts all across heartland America.

(* Is this funny ... or am I just hopelessly sick? *)

P.S. I've also heard that the elves are not amused when CEO Claus thinks it is so cute to refer to the gift-wrapping department as his "boxers and fluffers".

Are you sure you want your 5-year-old daughter sitting on this guy's lap?
