I shall be monitoring this thread and expect to see your inflammatory title changed to Ha! Ha! Ha!
Yours in over political correctness, Van
Good grief. The silly thing about all this, to me, is that most of the Santa's I see don't really even annunciate the "ho, ho, ho", anyway, it's more of just a deep laugh that has a "ho ho ho"ish sound. (IE, I don't think most Santa's sound like the "Christmas Story" Santa anyway).
If I were a kid, and I heard a Santa going "ha ha ha", I'd probably look at my mom/dad/whoever and say something like "He's saying it wrong, he's obviously not the REAL Santa".
When I heard the learn’d astronomer; When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me; When I was shown the charts and the diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them; When I, sitting, heard the astronomer, where he lectured with
much applause in the lecture-room, How soon, unaccountable, I became tired and sick; Till rising and gliding out, I wander’d off by myself, In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time, Look’d up in perfect silence at the stars. W.W.
