Santa’s Inappropriate Banter?

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.

Given this is RiotACT…. Not sure if serious? You have to be trolling.

Obvious troll is obvious. If not then seriously disturbed.

This explains why the Santa they interviewed on the news last night said ‘He He He’ at the end instead of ‘Ho Ho Ho’. I thought it was strange.

I too would to take this opportunity to point out how inappropriate it is to be selling easter eggs at Easter. Eating the young of innocent chickens is wrong and all this does it reinforce this message amongst the youth of today.

Huh, what’s wrong with “ho, ho ho”?

Hmm, this from 2007; you have to be kidding me?!

Talking of possibly inappropriate Xmas things…and not saying that festively labelled Toblerone is, but I took my son to see Father Christmas a week or so ago and whilst I was waiting for the photos to be printed out, a couple of 17 year old girls decided to come and get their photo taken on Santa’s lap. As you can imagine, they were doing it because they are 17 and don’t think any farther than dressing inappropriately and having some fun, however it occurred to me that it may have been a slightly uncomfortable moment for Santa, and wondered if really they should have an age limit of people who can sit on his lap – maybe they could sit by him, but not on him?

The other half of me says that it all looked innocent enough and probably happened all the time.

He said it again!

My wife was telling me yesterday about one of her friends saying the Santas at Westfield Belconnen were not allowed to say “ho ho ho” and this was written into their employment contract. I called bulls***, but I’m not so sure now. There are people so stupid as to take offence at this.

One of the more pathetic articles I’ve read on RiotACT. Whether this post is for real or not, there are increasing numbers of ‘do-gooders’ like this who really only serve to make our world an unhappy place. Seriously. Get over yourself, Darqan, you Christmas grinch!

Whether the OP is making fun of the PC extremes everyone goes to or is actually serious I don’t know. But there’s stuff going around about how Santa can’t say Ho Ho Ho anymore. Either because the ‘Ho’ part is offensive, or because it scares children. There was something about it in online Canberra Times on the 17th. Apparently they are told not to say it when they are trained for the job.

Incidentally people will probably appreciate some of the kids names in the articles too. Cruz, Scarlett, Juniper and Kayleen to start.

It’s a sad word.

Exactly. If Santa can enjoy a foursome, albeit paid for out of the elves’ superannuation fund, then good on him. I imagine language difficulties have somehow prevented him from stating the obvious line: “three hoes to go”, so he has reverted to the more simplistic ho, ho, ho.

join your boycott of ho ho ho chocolate?

Goodonem i reckon! People are so PC these days. and I don’t sing Baa baa rainbow sheep ever.
