Mass. high school principal needs to shut the meep up

Now all you have to do is say the word “meep.”

It’s pretty meeped up, if you ask me.

The controversy comes to us from Danvers, Mass., whose history of persecution stems back to the Salem Witch Trials.

Danvers High School principal Thomas Murray banned the use of the word meep last week because he feared that students were planning a major disruption on school grounds using the word.

The word doesn’t mean anything but it can be substituted for profanity or just be used as a greeting, according to Urban Dictionary.

Can mean whatever you want it to mean, but the most popular uses are:

  1. An exclamation akin to ‘ouch’ or ‘uh oh..’
  2. Filling in the blanks where other (rude) words would go.
  3. A greeting! I personally say meep instead of Hello…
  4. A random expression of happiness used to fill gaps in conversation.

The ban of the word prompted New York attorney Theodora Michaels to send an email to Danver school administrators simply stating the word “meep” in the subject line.

She received a response from assistant principal Mark Strout informing her that her email had been forward to the Danver Police Department.

This is how she explains it on her blog:

It’s been a long time since I was in high school, but I still remember what it was like to be young, and chafing under what seemed like arbitrary and capricious rules set down by school authorities.
So in solidarity with the students of Danvers High, and on my own initiative, I took about five seconds and sent an email to Principal Thomas Murray ( murray@danvers.org ), Assistant Principal Mark Strout ( strout@danvers.org ), Assistant Principal Cornelia Varoudakis ( cvaroudakis@danvers.org ), and Superintendent of Schools Dr. Lisa Dana ( dana@danvers.org ). All of these addresses are publicly available on the Danvers High School website.
My subject line said (in full), “meep.” The body said (in full), “Meep.”
Yesterday I received a reply email from Assistant Principal Mark Strout, which said (in full) “Your E-mail has been forwarded to the Danvers Police Department.”

No word yet whether they are going to extradite her to Massachusetts for her crime.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
