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.
Do your kids wander the hall screaming for no good reason? Then it’s not a problem.
Unapproved speech!!! Get back to your brainwashing!!
No, I taught them better than that.
But teachers have not shown themselves to be the most discriminate of people (reference: See “Zero Tolerance” policies). If they decided to slap some heads to stop a disruption, they’d just hit the nearest kid, who had better not be mine.
Kids being kids? We can’t have that!!!
Hey, at least they are too young for “WOW”
Zero tolerance policies go in place because people don’t like teachers and principals making punishment decisions, they like blanket “fair” punishments. Notice back when they were allowed to make decisions, and allowed to use corporal punishment, we didn’t have these kinds of problems (and the many worse problems that are around today).
WOW is still around, and no, most kids in Middle School are NOT too young.
Ask an 8th grader what a “Rainbow Party” is and you’ll see what I mean.
The school authorities don’t know what to do. It’s not a kid chewing a pop tart, or a boy placing a kiss on a girl’s cheek. Or a kid with an NRA shirt. Or a kid with a cross. HUMP doesn’t sound like any racist word.
What will the authorities do? Oh the horror! Oh the confusion!
What will the poor things do? Inject them all with xanax or whatever the hell drug they’re giving kids these days?
When I was that age in Connecticut schools we had atomic air raid drills. We all coped pretty well except for Mrs. McInerny who was a WWII bride from Germany. She had been through Allied air raids and wasn’t as enthusiastic about diving under desks as we were.
Now if the boy planted that kiss on another boys cheek, the teachers would celebrate diversity or something like that. (Meanwhile, hump is mildly sexually suggestive and they get mad at that.)
Its not a kid chewing a pop tart, or a boy placing a kiss on a girls cheek
Teachers need tlo go back to whipping kids!!!!
If these were “those days” I could see it. But now, in the 21st Century, I don’t trust the JBT wannabes with corporal punishment.
Next week it will be something else, & on & on & on.
Gross overreaction of the school administration.
