    "Hump Day"? NO thanks

    I hate this term. Every once in a while a term like this will creep into peoples vocabularies and stay for an undetermined amount of time. Im hoping this passes soon, I have heard it more and more in the last 6 months.

    I hate it. Today is Wednesday.

    I know a lot of people who use this term. It can get rather annoying. I prefer to use the term hump in a more derogatory manner. I do like Wednesday though. Two more days until the weekend and two days closer until I can get drunk again.

    I never liked the term either. Why do I need cutesy names for days of the week? On the other hand, if a woman approached me and asked me if I wanted to celebrate hump day, well, that's a different matter.

    It's not going to pass, I remember hearing that term back as a child in the 80s.

    It's a "hump" because it's the middle of the week. On thursday, you're more than halfway done, and therefore "over the hump." It makes perfect sense, it's just the negative connotations of the word "hump" that bring it down.

    Hump day is a silly way to refer to Wednesdays, presumably because wednesday is the middle day of the week, or "hump".

    I don't really get annoyed by it, though I do think it silly. I never use the term. To me, it's just plain wednesday.

    It refers to the center of a bell or hill; where from about noon on Wednesday on, you are on the downward side of the hump heading into the weekend. I personally find it stupid as I work 6 days a week so don’t have the middle of the work week day.

    Does that make tuesday 'incline day'? And thursday 'decline day'?

    I was thinking some kind of public holiday 'Hump Day'. In my perverted mind that was so much more appealing...

    Wouldn't that make Wednesday night hump night? And since you'll no longer be liberating millions of swimmies, I think you should take full advantage of it.

    Calling Wednesday "Hump Day" is just as stupid as all the people who don't like Mondays and feel the need to reference the song "Manic Monday" every single ****ing week.

    I hate all of them.

    Well you could time it so that you make here for the next hump day but by then Anakha would be waiting to hit you with a shovel.

    nope it's just a stupid name, doesn't matter what the connotations are IMO. Like having a case of Mondays! Just poxy.

    I didn't think of it that way, but I believe I may have found a new favorite night of the week.

    I've always said a shovel to the face is an honorable way to die.
