Didn't it originate from the USA, as I have never come across this saying in the UK, the first time I came across it was through using Traffic Exchanges and they had a hump day promo on a Wednesday, be interested in what others have to say or the true meaning and where it derived from.

hi maria up til a few years ago hump meant something realy different and happy hump day would have been sort of disgusting to hear but now my best friend taught me the present meaning its the hump of the workweek and hopefully the next two days will be even lesser as then the weekend off looms close. em]happy[/em]

If you were to make a graph, you would put Monday as 1, Tuesday as 2, Wednesday as 3, Thursday down to 2, and Friday to 1. With this graph you would see a hump if you connected these dots. ^ With Wednesday on top of the graph, it signified the top therefore nicknamed "hump day". This became a common name for the day, indicating the middle of the work week. I do not know of any "bad" meanings to this expression.
