    Pathetic.
    You mean to tell me that for the past... I don't even know how long to say... years, it wasn't offensive but now all the sudden, its offensive. That's pathetic.
    Maybe we don't know the entire story... maybe there was a "Bad Santa" I'll just think about it that way. They're ruining the Christmas spirit.

    What a good way to make little kids like Santa. The Santas have to say "ha ha ha" now... So (if I was in Sydney) my 4 year old neice, my 14 month old nephew, and my 2 year old neice will go see Santa and get laughed at? Not to mention, my 4 year old neice is deathly afraid of Santa or anything that resembles Santa...

    What other magical parts of our childhoods are going to be ripped away and denied to our children?
    Next thing you know,there's going to be a story about how the Easter Bunny doesn't exist.
    Let the kids be innocent for as long as possible!They'll have to be serious adults for the rest of their lives after high school.

    Halloween... Someone will come up with a story of how the pumkin is an evil sign because it grew on a vine
    Trick or Treating on Halloween because getting candy from lots of strangers. (Yes I trick or treated back in the day and yes I will (if any) let my kids trick or treat.)
    Reindeer because they're reindeer and they're magic.
    Coloring Easter eggs is a threat to the enviroment... they'll come up with some kind of gas that's "released" from hard-boiled egg shells that were dyed with coloring.
    The list could go on. I think its fun doing the whole "Santa's watching you" deal with the kids. It shuts them right up... The way they're taking things, Santa won't be anymore.

    The next thing will probably be "no sitting on Santa's lap"...might be a child-molester in disguise.

    Anyone notice the last line in the news article referred to "A U.S. based recruiting firm." U.S. as in us - World's Leader in stupid political correctness.

    So what are they going to do about the song from that classic movie?

    "Snow white and the seven vertically challenged people."

    I mean to say, when you think about it they could be seven pimps with a song like "Hi ho, Hi ho, its off to work we go".

    Is Snow White in danger of being forced into a life of moral depravity?
    Psychiatrists state 1 in 4 people has a mental illness.
    Look at three of your friends, if they are ok, your it.

    Ian, some might say she's way past that ... she is a young girl living alone with 7 men, after all.

    OK OK IT'S A JOKE, PEOPLE! Don't get your knickers in a knot.
