Raise the threat level!

Okay, so this is incredibly stupid...
Officials at a Massachusetts high school that banned the word "meep" have been receiving e-mailed complaints about the move, police said.

Danvers Police Sgt. Robert Bettencourt said officials from Danvers High School have sent him carbon copies of six e-mails complaining about the decision to ban "meep," a word popularized by Beaker from "The Muppet Show," the Boston Herald reported Monday.
And why did they feel the need to generate this pointless, relatively tiny (ooh, six whole e-mails!) controversy?
Principal Thomas Murray said the ban was put in place because of a plan posted to Facebook for a major disruption involving the word "meep."
Oh, God! It's like Columbine all over again!
