Australian Santas go PC with a vengence

Is this news story for real? Australian Santas take political correctness to new heights:

Yeah....I just can't believe that's true! I immediately email a friend of mine at Westaff to ask if it is true!

If it is true, well, I'm dumbfounded.

Just a beat-up in Murdoch's Adelaide rag, Sally, something to frighten little conservatives with. I tried to point this out in the Lounge forum:

Oh, now I get it. I did think it was quite unbelievable when they talked about the ho being offensive to women, I didn't think too many Australians used that term in that way. Interesting how you were scared by Santas, I don't remember any Santas in my childhood, scary or otherwise.
