Oh yeah!!! Too funny! We all know the negative way to incorporate the word "Ho". Think of a couple to yourself.........you know you just smiled. Of course that is not what pirates meant by by that word. The whores during the era of pirates where not called "hos", they were called wenches. "Ho" is an expression of joy or to attract attention to something. "Land Ho!!!" By all means, if you see a ho you can say "land ho" unless she is in the water or on a bus...lol. If you are at your favorite restaurant and you have been waiting a long time for your food, when you finally see the sever walking toward your table with it you can say "Food Ho!!!" Hopefully she will have a sense of humor. I know I would. Savvy?
