Danvers High School in Massachusetts has banned students from saying the word "meep." Officials say students use the word, which was popularized on The Muppet Show and has no meaning, to disrupt school. Attorney Theodora Michaels says that after reading about the ban, she sent school officials an e-mail reading simply "Meep." She says they responded by reporting her to the police.
