A Surprising Brouhaha Over the Use of the Word "Meh"

"Meh" is the online equivalent of saying to someone's face "whatever!" or my favorite variants, "whatevs" or the silent "W" formed with your thumbs and index fingers. The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman complained about it on Twitter last week, claiming that it represents that the user has "missed the point," or worse — rejects joy! So of course, people responded to this Tweet with (drumroll): "Meh." Hahaha. "Meh" has been traced back to two Simpsons episodes in which Lisa and Bart express their disdain for something their parents did. It's an official word now, "meh" haters, so get used to it. It's now in the Collins English Dictionary! Click here to read more.

I use it religiously along with Pheh (another word etymologically connected to Matt Groening--uttered by one of my favourite movie critics, Jay Sherman), along with many other interjections that have taken over much of my oratory utterances, I even have a sadly underused flask bearing the word! http://tinyurl.com/mehflask
