Santa’s Inappropriate Banter?

By Darqan 20 December 2011 57

Inappropriate Chocolate Bar

While conducting my weekly shop at a local supermarket I stumbled upon this very inappropriate piece of Christmas advertising on a traditional chocolate treat. As we are all aware, and for good reason, Santas around the country (and hopefully the world) are no longer to say “Ho ho ho” due to its offensive nature. The last thing I need to deal with is my four-year-old child running around the house spouting such offensive language.

Rest assured that I will be contacting the producer of this product, Kraft, to inform them of the extremely inappropriate labelling of their product. Please join me in boycotting this treat at Christmas time to help reinforce the message to this company.

What’s Your opinion?

I think now is a good time to point out that “Ho Ho Ho” is meant to mean “hello and take notice everyone”.

Not, Merry Xmas, Where doe’s bitches at?

Godess…. it’s “whore” not “wh&re”. How hard is this to get.

Ho Ho Ho has been around a long time. A ho is the sound that emanates from a Jerry Springer show *guest* when he’s actually saying wh&re. So, it’s a misunderstanding and nobody should be offended.

I call Troll!!

This has to be a joke. If it’s not, I’m going to find the OP and beat some sense into them with a rubber hose.

I think you’ll find that you have to pay extra for rubber Hos.

Anyway, as Tiger Woods would say, “Three Hos are better than a hole-in-one”……

Saying hehehe makes Santa sound like a paedophile…

You mean getting an old man to dress up in red pyjamas and a fake beard then getting innocent kiddies to sit on his lap and whisper sweet nothings into his doesn’t?

This reminds me of the time Santa was in court for slander. The opposite QC said ” I put to to you Mr Clause that not once, not twice but three times you called my client a Ho…”

I think it’s time to ban political correctness and have those who practice it taken outside and shot.

So… you want it banned because it offends you?

No because it’s crap.

I fail to see how a slang word from a foreign country can be termed offensive here. Do we have to re-name thsoe long-handled garden implements too?

Better not, I always giggle inside when I ask someone to pass me my Swedish Hoe 🙂

I’d hope that it was my “fantastic” use of the English language that got them riled up, than any naivety on their part. I was really digging for honest reactions as opposed to a “Yes Man” response. All credit to those who spoke (typed?) their minds.

… and you better not be trolling 😉

I love how people wait for 42 posts and an explanation before saying how naive people are for attacking the OP.
