    As long as one of Santa's helpers isn't Paris Hilton, this obviously is crazy. Instead, they're supposed to say "ha, ha, ha."</a>

    Are they told not to say Merry Christmas because that can be offensive to non-Christians, and people named Mary?
    "Ha ha ha, enjoy the winter holiday."

    Yep, an entire story based on what one potential Santa says a recruiting firm told him, I believe it!

    Australians never say "Merry Christmas." It's way too American. They say "happy Chrissy."
    And while they have many creative slang words for prostitutes, ho is not one of them. Again, way too Yank.
    Bogus story.

    Personally, I think Santa should say, "slut, slut, slut."

    I'm picturing Bill O'Reilly in a too-small elf outfit with really tight green tights.

    Thanks for the image, by the way, you Bastard.
