(Undated-AP) -- Those thin jelly bracelets are making a comeback, but they may have a different meaning than they did in the 80s. And Utah school officials are trying to figure it out.
Teens say the bracelets are used for a game called "Snap". The color of the bracelet corresponds with a certain sexual act, anything from kissing or hugging, to sex or oral sex.
Someone tries to snap the bracelet, and if it breaks, the owner has to perform the act with the "snapper" according to what color the bracelet is.
The principal at Mueller Park Junior High says he'll ban them if their research turns up their hidden meaning. So far, the bracelets are only banned at North Davis Junior High, but only because they violate the school's uniform dress code.
The bracelets have been banned at schools across the country.
