Geico might be known for its little lizard, but it's the camel thats stirring up trouble.
You might have seen their latest commercial. A camel walks through a workplace asking people what day it is. Hes super excited about it being hump day. Funny, right?
Teachers at least one Connecticut middle school arent fans, because the kids are screaming HUMP DAY in the halls, students told HLN affiliate WFSB. They say its distracting, and they want it to stop.

Yes, they ran out of “government shutdown” stories after finally discovering that they can’t get the public all mad about it.
You won’t have to slap more than two or three kids upside the head for the rest to figure out screaming in the halls is not recommended.
Unghhh. Children are sooooo immature.
I still do it at my job. No one has asked me to stop yet.
Exactly. If this were the worst thing that was happening in schools these days, we’d be in pretty good shape.
These idiot teachers need to shut up and teach.
Sports talk show host The Fabulous Sports Babe used to have a bit (done by “the voice of ESPN” Jim Cutler I believe) set to the tune of the Funeral March
It’s Hu-u-ump day—HooAh!

According to the link, two teachers in one school have told kids to stop yelling “Hump Day”. That’s it, and the article admits this.
The rest of the link is devoted to an idiotic demonstration of how to annoy people in a lame attempt at humor.
Tea Party’s fault?
hahaha give these kids a medal.
Good thing the don’t know about Frikin Friday.
When I was in middle school, teachers could control their classrooms even on hump day.
In fact, I may have learned the term from a teacher who explained that its the day we get over the hump and head for the weekend.
this made me laugh...our principal and assistant principal have been known to reenact it on the morning announcements.
I have one student in my class that on Wednesday I call “MikeMikeMikeMike.” And I do the skit WITH my kids if the mood strikes.
Some people need to get that stick out from their butt and have fun with the whole thing rather than ban it!
I think the school administrators can relax. As far as I know, no kids are running around yelling "sit on it!" or "don't squeeze the Charmin". Gee, ya think this fad might disappear, too?
Don’t forget “where’s the beef!”
Yes, teachers, it is called discipline and you have to put in a little effort...it is not within your massive union’s power to tell private companies to stop
I always had a general rule for the school: You hit my kid and I’ll hit you.
