Angry Mothers Fight To Bump “Hump Day” From Calendar

protestDozens of members of Protesting United Mothers Against Sexualization (PUMAS) took to the streets of Washington, DC today to urge the Federal Government to ban the use of “Hump Day” as a slang term for Wednesday.

“Our children are subjected to too much sexuality at an early age because of lower moral standards and higher access to the social media,” Margie Simmons, PUMAS Founder and Chairwoman, told this Modern Philosopher.  “We want our politicians, who are the carriers of the moral torch, to take action to help out children stay sweet and innocent.  Because of this, we want the H Day term stricken from the vernacular.”

The PUMAS marched within sight of The White House, and apparently their message made it to President Obama’s ears because he did issue the following statement: “I hear what the PUMAS are saying, and I support their cause, but there’s nothing I can do about this issue.  I might be the Leader of the Free World, but when it comes to anything even remotely related to the calendar, I must defer to The Calendar Commission.”

Once again, The Calendar Commission proves that it is all powerful, Modern Philosophers.  Not even the President of the United States can control it.  Wow.

camelThe PUMAS were not the only group speaking out on Hump Day.  The World Association of Camels chimed in on the situation, with the Geico Camel himself acting as spokescamel.

“While we respect the stance of PUMAS, the camels of the world are very much for the continued use of the term ‘Hump Day’.  Camel pride took a big hit when Joe Camel lost his position as an advertising icon.  I have been lucky enough to be the camel chosen to step back into the spotlight, and as a species, we refuse to give up the spot once again.  We do not think Hump Day is a sexual term, but rather one that symbolizes the world’s love for camels.  Have you hugged a camel today?”

I can proudly answer that question in the affirmative, Modern Philosophers, having hugged the Geico Camel after our interview.  You know what?  It felt good and made me happy!

Wednesday even issued a statement via its agents at ICM: “I love that the world thinks of Wednesday as Hump Day.  Let’s face it, my name isn’t exactly a cinch to spell, so anything that makes it easier for people is okay with me.  I think Hump Day is a positive term that reminds everyone that the work week is halfway over, and there’s nothing wrong with that.  Happy Hump Day!”

hump daySo where do you stand on this Hump Day debate, Modern Philosophers?  Do you side with the PUMAS or the camels?  Do you think that Hump Term is a highly sexualized term?  Do you prefer your camels with one hump or two?

I’m just glad that it’s Wednesday, and we’re on the downward slope to the weekend.  I’m also psyched I got to hug a camel today.

Happy Hump Day!

    i love camels.
    i love that commercial.
    always makes me laugh

    I think camels are just immoral in general. First they sell unfiltered cigarettes, now pushing “hump day” and they have already claimed “camel toe”. Who knows where their sick twisted influence is leading..

  4. People just can’t accept humor. Nowadays no matter what you say you’re going to be condemned. I think there’s nothing wrong with this expression. Thanks for sharing this. Cherokee Billie

    So funny! I love hump day too and find that camel commercial hilarious. I think the PUMAS may want to loosen up their underwear…

      PUMAS must wear tighty whities! 🙂 Do you notice one friend on Facebook lashed out at this because she thought the protest was real? I got a kick out of explaining to her it’s all satire. 🙂

  6. Reblogged this on By the Mighty Mumford and commented:
    DON’T THE TWO-HUMP CAMELS HAVE ANY SAY???

  7. Teela Hart says:

    Seems to me we have a few “dirty minded” mama’s out there.
    One hump or two? Hee Hee

  8. I’m an eternal optimist and think we’re on the downhill side of the hump. Up with camels and “dump the hump (day).” It’s a good thing our dogs don’t understand the “Hump Day” concept–that could prove disastrous.

    honestly PUMAS have you not got anything else to complain about.. how about that kim kardashian thing always flaunting her ass(ets) or the way all the movie godlets seem to have millions of $$$$ but cannot buy a simple bra. Except Dame Helen Mirren, or all those god awful, ( read i do not understand) tattooed guys.
    Or the way women bag Hilary Clinton or Angela Merkel or likes but cannot get past Kindergarten committees.
    to use aussie slang : it’s just a joke joyce. get over ( to quote the eagles song):))))

  10. I am always confused, do PUMAS like older or younger men, and one or two at a time.
