Santa can keep his hos. I prefer the term "whore" anyway. Whores are classier.

OK, I'm not the slightest bit offended, but I'm offended that someone would even think I would find that offensive!!!

According to Westaff (the temp company which hires the Santas) the Telegraph story is nonsense, and they never told anyone anything to the effect that "ho ho ho" might offend women and shouldn't be said. (The Telegraph, which is a notoriously screechy tabloid, based that claim on a single "anonymous source".) They did say that they encourage the Santas to lower their voices and alternate with "ha ha ha" with young children who appear frightened, but that's about it.

Much ado about nothing.

Thank god-thanks for clearing that up, yolland. I would hope this wouldn't bother anybody, and if it did, I'd say they really need to get a serious grip on reality.

It's dumb anyone would think of this! Really! The only ones offended would have to be the REAL hos of the world, and there's plenty of them!!

Utterly ridiculous that anyone would think I should find Santa's "ho, ho, ho" offensive.



Although the time he backhanded me & called me a 'stupid bee-atch' for asking him to bring me a pony did hurt a bit.

Yeah. I'll decide what I'm offended by, I don't need other people telling me.

That is the stupidest thing I've read in the last 30 seconds.

Seriously though, that's bad. Really bad.

Yeah, the sister tabloid to the New York Post and Fox News must be 100% fair and balanced.

But, no one wants to think about the hos.

Sad, sad situation all around.
