Meep has been Banned
The principal learned of the plan from Facebook. If students use the word "meep" during school they could face suspension. The principal even sent an automated phone message to all parents of Danvers High School to let them know that this tomfoolery was planned on being carried out.
Seems to me if these kids were up enough on technology, they could have easily come up with a different word to use and thus avoid possible suspension.
I can't recall the last time I said the word "meep" but I am going to try to incorporate it into my everyday conversations, especially when I want to stop having those conversations. If a solicitor calls I am going to repeat "meep" until they hang up in frustration or reply to me using the word "meep". If I am shopping at Target any my daughter wants something and doesn't take "No" for an answer I am going to repeat the word "meep" until she nearly dies of embarrassment.
I am so thankful to these kids at Danvers High for introducing this word back into the English language.
