Default CT Middle School Bans Kids From Saying Its Hump Day"



Quote:
Fox With over 15 million views, the Geico Hump Day commercial is one of the most memorable commercials to date. But the catch phrase has gone too far, according to one middle school.

Now, students at Vernon Center Middle School in Vernon, Connecticut are banned from saying it. And while the school administrators say its a distraction some students dont think its that big of a deal. Parents say the school district should have bigger concerns. I think its all kind of silly, Mick Ruggiero, father of Jacob, I think theres bigger things to take care of in middle schools than that. Obviously you dont want the kids to be disruptive.

What is the point? I swear some people just have to be control freaks. I bet it drives the administration of that school crazy when the commercial comes on.

Not agreeing or disagreeing but imagine a ton of middle schoolers yelling out in the hallway, "It's Hump Day!". Gets annoying and disruptive

So if the kids decide to yell out something else, should it be banned as well? If you go down that road, the hallways would soon be silent.

Default Re: CT Middle School Bans Kids From Saying Its Hump Day"

What I don't understand is the recent fascination with "Hump Day" and associating it with a camel like it is a new phrase or association.

I mean...that has been around forever and I hope isn't a "new" concept. Wonder why it is suddenly catching on with commercials, internet memes, string e-mails, Facebook posts, etc?

The only thing I can think is it's like a little boy who discovers his "toy" for the first time and thinks it's a new thing.

You can thank the Geico commercial for that. Why does anything become a sensation? Right time and right circumstances. I don't know why this one picked up like it did, but I didn't particularly care for that commercial.

I learned the term "hump day" in class in elementary school. And that commercial is hilarious.

Okay let me get this straight it kids get bombarded with sex everyday and even in the classroom yet saying hump day is bad as if there is truly sexual undertones to that phrase which there isn't when referring to Wednesdays. What has America become

Revived it all would be more correct. Wednesday has been called Hump Day for generations...and often a camel is used in association.

I just hope Geico doesn't think they are geniuses for thinking they "came up with this idea."

Geez...I don't know since I don't have an opinion on the ruling of the school. AS far as the hallways being silent, that would be a start. The less disruptions the better

Oh no way. I know about all that, but that commercial is what made it blow up like it has. I thought it was funny too for the first like 2 weeks before I got bombarded with memes and pictures and videos of camels every Wednesday, haha.
