School bans popular 'Hump Day' phrase

Posted: Updated:

VERNON, Connecticut -- The Geico commercial with the talking camel celebrating “Hump Day” is quite popular, but one school in Connecticut says the joke has worn thin.

The 6th grade teachers at Vernon Middle School said the phrase has become so disruptive that they started banning kids from saying it.

Apparently the students aren't just saying it on Wednesdays -- they're making every day “Hump Day.”
