School Bans Students From Quoting Geico “Hump Day “Commercial [VIDEO]
Geico’s popular “Hump Day” commercial featuring a camel walking around an office asking workers. “What day is it” has become an annoying hit with school kids. One school in Connecticut has even gone so far as to ban it during classroom hours.
The phrase, “hump day” is commonly used to describe Wednesday, the middle of the work week and the day workers feel they are over “the hump” but, according to WebProNews some parents think it has a sexual meaning.
Vernon Center Middle School faculty members said that kids were using the phrase for every day of the week and that it was starting to distract students in the hallways and during class. They have banned the use of the phrase and even started sending students to the principal’s office for using it.
The phrase has even gotten the attention of the White House.

Regardless of how you feel about it you have to admit that the attention it has gotten has put a lot of smiles on the faces of the people a Geico.
Guess what day it is? It’s HUMP DAY! The new Geico commercial uses a camel instead of the infamous Gecko, that walks around the office, asking everyone to ‘guess what day it is.’ I laughed so hard the first time I watched it and thought it would be fun to do the same thing at our office.
