Help settling a silly debate

All righty folks, here's the deal. For months now i've been trying to explain to Ace_O_Spades (yes you *glare*) that the expression: "Wednesday is hump day" is a legitimate Canadian/North American idiomatic phrase. It may be a little old, or only exclusive to Canada, but nonetheless IT IS REAL!

*again glares at Ace at his refusal to acknowledge a real expression*

Seeing as how he won't believe me in saying that i didn't make it up, nor does it stand for anything kinky, i decided to post it up here to see what our peanut gallery has to say.

It is Hump Day because it is in the middle of the week. After Wednesday its all down hill from there to the weekend. I do however feel that we should all start a grassroots movement make it stand for something kinky.

I used to work with a guy who referred to it as Hump Day, because it was the middle of the week, and cuz it was the one day of the week that his wife and him got it on, planned.

Yup . . . . by Wednesday, you're "over the hump" and on the downhill ride to the weekend.

Definitely. Get past Wednesday, and you're "over the hump".

Though I always thought it was a little silly, since more people have sex on the weekends...

ACE!!!! @#$%#$% You are wrong, just admit it and move on, the debate is over.

well folks it's not about hump as in humping another person, c'mon now, it's hump as in middle of the week, like a hill you've got to climb... hurrah! Doesn't matter if you like it or not either, just if you've heard of it or not.

Thanks, this is awesome!

Leader: Monday's a working day

Leader: Tuesday's a drinking day
All: Tuesday's a drinking day
... and so on w/ the following days:....
Wednesday's a smoking day
Thursday's an Ahhh day
Friday's a fucking day
Saturday's a footy day
Sunday's a holy day

hump day

wednesday

cause it's downhill after wednesday; it's the hump you have to get over.

hump day

The middle of a work week (Wednesday); used in the context of climbing a proverbial hill to get through a tough week.

After hump day, the weekend gets closer.

Actually I never even concidered any other meaning than sexual

You are going to have to give in on this one Ace, fallenangel is correct. I am in the western part of the US and I have heard and used this term for many years. I know a lot of people throughout the states who use it as well. It isn't used as frequently as it used to be, but I do still hear it.

I am curious like Lebell is....what did ya bet???

I always thought Tuesday was the hump day, you're in sight of the weekend again by Wednesday and I dunno about where you live, but Wednesday has always been a reasonable night out on the razzle dazzle wherever I've laid my hat.

Tuesdays.

Grrr.
