“Meep” is banned at Danvers High in Massachusetts in response to a Facebook-organized student plot to say “meep” frequently in class.
Principal Thomas Murray banned the word last week after school officials got wind of a student plan brewing on Facebook to stage a major disruption on school grounds using the word “meep.”
“Meep,” which can be used to replace any word, was popularized by the lab assistant Beaker, a Muppet.
If the issue is the use of nonsense words to waste time in class, you’d think the principal should ban all nonsense words, not just “meep.” After all, what about “moop?”
Danvers was the site of the Salem Witch Trials, points out Core Knowledge Blog.
