Political Correctness Taken Too Far

There are news going around that this season Santas might be banned to use their traditional greeting of "ho, ho, ho" and thus have to use "ha, ha, ha" instead because the term "ho" is too close to the American slang for prostitute. It's said that the "ho ho ho" phrase could be offensive to women and could even frighten children. However, this has change in the tradition might have other negative results. What if kids everywhere become traumatized now that Santa is laughing mockingly at them?
