    PC is an enemy of free speech. Is that your bottomline ?

    Oh being of unknown power, existence and multiplicity.
    Don't they realise that caving in like this is precisely what leads to words getting hijacked and taken out of use? They should have insisted on their own definition of "ho ho ho" and given a big middle finger to the pimps.

    I don't have a bottom line on this. Frankly, I can't make hide nor hair of how getting rid of 'ho ho ho' does anyone any good anywhere....It's not even a matter of free speech, just common sense...

    It's times like these I welcome the fire engulfing death from an asteroid or equally large celestial object. Stupidity like this doesn't deserve to live.

    ho ho ho

    I think it depends on the context. What would everyone's opinion be if the Australian Santa was saying, 'ho, ho, ho!' while pointing at random women?

    I wish to apologize in advance for the nasty mental images one may experience from reading this post.

    Probably the same as it would be if a priest were singing "O, Come, All Ye Faithful" while, uh, experiencing high blood pressure in the groinal region.

    Not really grounds to censor the song, is it? :p

    ...see? this is why you need to listen to more hip-hop :lol:

    "G's up Ho's down!" :mischief:

    Maybe, but if you read carefully, the department store told all its santas pre-emptively not to use the 'h-word'.

    Well, on the one hand, I can't blame him for protesting and saying h* ** **. On the other hand, he was warned, so they had the right to fire him even if they were wrong to do so.

    Indeed. They didn't fire him because he wasn't politically correct, they fired him because he failed to obey a rule they laid out.

    And now, the store must be boycotted, for laying down phenomenally stupid rules for their Santas.

    OH BUT DON'T YOU KNOW? Being anti-PC means you're a RACIST and not accepting of people's (insert special trait)!

    Also hahaha is offensive to quadriplegics.

    That is surely stupid.
    Americanizing ftl.
    I'm serious about this with America btw (Or in this case Australia, and I blame America for some reason. I'm tired.) - there is too much censorship.
