Meep has been Banned

(From www.beakersaviary.com)

Apparently kids at Danvers High School can no longer utter the "meep". Their principal has banned the word made famous by Beaker from The Muppets because the kids were going to repeat the word over and over again to disrupt class.

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.

(From Wikipedia)

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.

Wasn't it one of the finalist of The Bachelor London Calling had a case of the "Meeps"? She was a chronic hiccupper...

Great news! Thanx for visiting my blog. You have a great one here too.

Gillian, I hadn't heard that but I don't watch the Bachelor for the UK or US. There was a girl on the Today show last week who hadn't stopped sneezing for the last several weeks. They thought it was OCD or something.

I hadn't heard about this before but I like the situations when you'd use the word "meep"!

Kate said...

Ann said...

What a great idea. I think meep is going to be my new key word at work from now on.

Facebook needs to work a bit harder to become ALL POWERFUL. Another kid plan thwarted! Phewww! That was a close call.

I laughed...and now 'meep' shall become part of my daily life.

(I'm in my fifties and had never heard it before!)

Petula said...

That is absolutely hilarious!

Theresa said...

Cute post! Rockin' post title. I remember Beaker. I always liked him. Thanks for bringing him back. Meep!

sits_on_the_fence said...

Marvellous. I was only thinking about him today. Only cause I was being a bit of a muppet.

Corrie said...

I organizing these things were better when I was a kid. The school never found out about the plans :)

Linda Medrano said...

Jen, you are a rebel!

Beaker, how I love you! I think "meep" could DEFINITELY work it's way into the mainstream. Look at how well "Doh!" has done!!!

Thanks for the post! It made me smile!!

Auntie E said...

Meep has been one of my expressions of dismay for years. I'd forgotten it came from Beaker though. I used to love the Muppets as a kid. MEEP!

Have a terrific day. :)

I have to say I got a good laugh over the idea of stopping unwanted conversations by using the "meeps". I will have to try that.

Wow, the high school banned the word "Meep"? AM I missing something? A special meaning to the word? I would like to think this was the biggest problem in my son's high school.

Kelly Garriott Waite said...

My son says that all the time and I didn't know where it came from! I love your strategy. Meepmeepmeepmeepmeep.
