Political Correctness Chills Christmas

This one shouldn't need much introduction or comment:

THERE'LL be no ho, ho, ho this Christmas. Aspiring Santas have been told not to use the term "ho" because it could be seen as derogatory to women.

Thirty trainees at a Santa course in Adelaide [Australia] last month, held by recruitment company Westaff, were urged to replace the traditional festive greeting with "ha, ha, ha".

Don't these busybodies have anything better to do with their time?
