SYDNEY (AFP) - 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" (*this is so pathetic*)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.
"Gimme a break," said Julie Gale, who runs the campaign against sexualising children called Kids Free 2B Kids.
"We are talking about little kids who do not understand that "ho, ho, ho" has any other connotation and nor should they," she told the Telegraph.
"Leave Santa alone."
A local spokesman for the US-based Westaff recruitment firm said it was "misleading" to say the company had banned Santa's traditional greeting and it was being left up to the discretion of the individual Santa himself.

News like this just makes me wonder...

There's like akazillion social networking websites now.There's Friendster,Myspace,Tagged,Facebook,MyYearBook,Bebo,... etc.
ok, so ..
MySpace is the most popular one.But it gets boring after awhile...I only kept my MySpace account for 2 months alive just for the sake of getting to know my guildies from W.o.W better. mmm.
It's so boring cause not many people that I know really use it.
Wherelse, Friendster is so much more well known to the people I know...especially in Malaysia.
I've made alot of great friends on Friendster and got to know a person better by using Friendster..ah, the good times.
I got an account when I was 12 but I didn't really use it. Then, this Joanne Wong Sze Mei kept on buggin me to send her testimonials so..that's how it began..
Friendster gain it's popularity since one columnist on The Star wrote about it.
Anyways, its been fun. :D
