Oh, Meep! High School Principal Bans Nonsensical Word

Danvers High School Principal Thomas Murray was not amused - I repeat, not amused - when kids in his school started saying the word "meep." Anyone caught uttering or displaying the word of choice of Beaker, the orange-haired muppet from The Muppet Show, will be - gasp - suspended!

It's no surprise that using bad language in school can get you into hot water. But "meep"?

Danvers High parents recently got an automated call from the principal warning them that if students say or display the word "meep" at school, they could face suspension.

Meep doesn't mean much, unless you are Beaker — the hapless, orange-haired assistant to Dr. Bunsen Honeydew on "The Muppet Show."

While meep may be nonsense, what it represented was no laughing matter to the high school's administration. High school Principal Thomas Murray said students were using it and other words to disrupt school in a particular part of the building on Cabot Road.

Sponge Bob had an episode regarding "Bad Words" referred to as "Sentence Enhancers". It was hysterical! This principal could be played by the same guy who chased after Ferris Bueller in Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Meep! My goodness kid's can be so cruel. They obviously pushed this poor fellow over the edge. What on earth will the "Road Runner" do now? Meep Meep!

As Calvin said to his dad, "Did you know that you can take a word and make it mean something completely different? Don't you think that's totally spam? It's lubricated! Well, I'm phasing."

Dad: Marvy. Fab. Far out.
