Sharpton slaps Santa for saying 'ho'

By Chris Elliott

The Rev. Al Sharpton has set his sights on the North Pole over what he calls "Santa's casual and constant use of the word 'ho'."

"Calling any woman a 'ho' is demeaning and abusive and it should not be tolerated on any level. With Santa it's always, ho this, and ho that, and then pretty soon it's ho ho ho with that fat old cracker," said Sharpton. "People cut him slack because of his philanthropy, but I am tired of watching him denigrate our beautiful black sisters. I didn't let Imus get away with it and, as popular as he is, Santa won't get away with it either. Racism in America is perpetuated by ignorance and hate, and I plan to micromanage the language people are permitted to use by claiming that the word 'ho' is a setback to civil rights and the advancement of equality."

Santa issued the following terse statement via reindeer express: "Tell Sharpton I'm making him a Tawana Brawley doll. It tells lies until you slap it around a little bit, ho ho ho!"
