meh

Every year we get these dag nab, confound it words or sayins put into our genuwine English Language dictionary…heck, this year its a lookin like its gonna be “meh”. Just this morning HarperCollins Publishers announced it was including “meh” in its dictionary. You’all ain’t never heard of “meh”. Well, here is its meanin:

A multi-purpose response, primarily used to imply a degree of indifference. Tone of voice and circumstance often implies a meaning. Can be used when you don’t want to answer an awkward or embarrassing question, or if you just plain have nothing else to say, and you want the other person to interpret the “meh” however he/she chooses. As in: Q: “What do you think of my new dress?” A: “Meh.” or Q: “What do you want to do tonight?” A: “Meh.”. I know thats some high falootin writing.

It’s a seemin like that little rascal Bart Simpson started the fussin about “meh”…doggone it, I never thought I’d a see the day when a cartoon character would be inventing words. Shoot.
