Sacked Santa Clause....

A 70-year-old man working as Santa Claus says he was SACKED from a Cairns department store for saying "ho, ho, ho" and singing Christmas carols.... In a case of political correctness seemingly gone mad, retired entertainer John Oakes says he was fired from his job at Myer for his rendition of Santa’s famous laugh.

His employer, Westaff, last month sparked national outrage when it ordered its Santas to say "ha, ha, ha" instead of "ho, ho, ho" because it could be derogatory to women but denied the words were a factor in Mr Oakes’s case.... The word "ho" is also American slang for a whore.... A sign of a christmas and santa hater di ba....? How could you think of such stupid ideas na bastos ang word na ho-ho-ho....?! Everyone expect Santa Clause to go ho-ho....! If Santa will go ha-ha, that sounds like Jim Carrey....! And if Santa will say hey-hey-hey, that's more like Krusty the Clown in the famous Simpsons cartoon....!

"They’re trying to kill the spirit of Christmas," Mr Oakes told The Cairns Post yesterday, just days into his fourth year as Myer’s Santa.... "But after my shift on Monday, I got a call from my manager telling me my services were no longer required.... "I hadn’t done anything wrong so I asked her why, and she said, ‘You said ho, ho, ho and that’s not appropriate’.... Since when it's not appropriate for Santa to say ho-ho....? I think they were just plainly being ridiculous, sa palagay nyo....! Isn't Santa suppose to be a happy jolly person....? I think the world is really going in a totally strange direction nowadays, ano sa palagay nyo....? =)

What is going on is that some political correctness are going too far. Do you know that there was an African-American who complained that the song "White Christmas" is discriminatory? LOL...para lang daw sa mga puti. Eh, ano ba ang ibig sabihin ng "white" diyan kundi yung snow na puti.

Ay naku! Makatulog na nga, ah.
