Some say the term Hump Day was coined in 1965. In Frederic G. Cassidy’s Dictionary of American Regional English, Volume I, he says Hump Day was used by counselors at summer camp to mean Wednesday. I lived and worked at a summer camp and yes, we said that on Wednesdays. I don’t know about it being coined there. I’ve found other references that say it goes back to the 1940’s. No citations though. No matter where this term came from, it’s the official half-way mark in the workweek and the weekend is on the other side of that little hill.
I saw this the other day and thought it was funny. 🙂 Alas, I get no remuneration from Geico.
