Ho Ho Ho
Ho Ho Ho
A cranky re-run from December 2013
I love Christmas. I have always loved Christmas, but I have to confess there is one thing about this holiday celebration that I hate.
I hate the Ho Ho Ho!
Come on now, haven’t you known people that laugh at everything they say? Doesn’t it annoy you when people say something that isn’t funny and then laugh? Everything these people ever say, they follow with a laugh.
“Good morning, Ha ha ha ha!”
“Do you want cream with your coffee? Ha ha ha ha!”
What is it with these people? What is it with Santa Clause?
“Merry Christmas Ho Ho Ho!”
“On Dasher, on Prancer, on Donna and Blixon Ho Ho Ho!”
What is so funny about "Merry Christmas?" Why does Santa laugh when he commands his reindeer? The Lone Ranger did not say “High Ho Ho Ho Silver Away.”
I am sure that laughing after everything you say has some serious psychological implications. Is Santa some kind of a nut? Is it safe for little children to sit on his lap?
“Well hello little girl Ho Ho Ho! Come sit on old Santa’s lap Ho Ho Ho! And what do you want for Christmas Ho Ho Ho!”
Is there anything funny about any of that conversation? No wonder so many kids are scared of Santa. They recognize weird when they see it.
Jolly old elf indeed, there’s something wrong with that guy.
Stop the Ho Ho Ho. A smile would do.
