This is of the funniest news articles I've read in years: A Danvers Principal is attempting to ban students from using the word "meep."
From the article:
Bob Thompson, a pop culture professor at Syracuse University, said he first heard students meep about a year ago during a class screening of a television show. "Something happened and one of them said 'Meep,'" he said. "And then they all started doing it."
The meeps, he said, came from all of the students in the class in rapid-fire succession. When he asked them what that meant, they said it didn't really mean anything.
"It's almost like they look at you like it's a silly question," he said.
But meeping doesn't seem to be funny to Danvers High School Principal Thomas Murray, who threatened to suspend students caught meeping in school.
That last line just kills me. (article via Ryan)
And...The Friday song is back! I couldn't find anything with meeps, so I had to settle for beeps.
