The faculty at a middle school in Connecticut has just about had it up to *here* with all of those tired, forced references to the Geico "Hump Day" commercial that your dad loves so much.

They're so fed up with students quoting the camel commercial that they've banned all references to the spot, which is, apparently, a thing that seemed reasonable to them.

"Everybody's walking around in the hallways and saying it's hump day in that weird voice," said Brooke Lewis, who is a student at Vernon Center Middle School.

Superintendent of Schools Dr. Mary P. Conway said that some sixth-grade boys at Vernon Center Middle School started using the phrase so much, teachers said it was disruptive. [WFSB]

Those are real quotes. Like, not from an Onion article. [h/t Gawker]
