Hoe hoe hoe!

Ho ho ho! It’s Christmas time, and Australian Santas are rebelling against attempts to ban the traditional ”ho ho ho” greeting to ”ha ha ha.” Guess Santa won’t be delivering presents this year!

Santas were told not to use ”ho ho ho”, as it was too similar to the American slang term ”hoe”, for prostitute.

Hoe Hoe Hoe!

Have a merry Christmas! Translation into political correctness: happy Holidays!

  1. Hey there.
    While I personally would not use the term hohoho around someone if I knew they’d be offended by the term (because I don’t want to make people feel upset or unhappy) I just thought I’d point out that this Australian hohoho thing isn’t actually true.

  2. Yor2;8&17#ue hilarious. And totally right. The Apple/iTunes domination of digital media drives me nuts… thanks for the excellent review of a product I have never considered buying. I feel vindicated.
