Do you want to bite meh?

How great is that term, "meh"? It's the perfect way to describe something as being completely unexciting, generally boring, flacid even in terms of conversational depth. Urban Dictionary describes it as "the verbal equivalent of the shrug of the shoulders."

Well said.

It even appeared in an episode of The Simpsons:

Homer: Kids, how would you like to go... to Blockoland!
Bart & Lisa: Meh.
Homer: But the TV. gave the impression that--
Bart: We said "meh".
Lisa: M-E-H. Meh.

Meh can also be used in LOLcat language in replace of the word "me". For example:

I used to think that the greatest invention in the world was Post-Its. But label makers are by far better.

The other day I was in the conference room at work, in the middle of an important meeting, and I looked down at the table to write something in my notebook, and there was a label stuck to the table that read:


I've also tossed around the idea of making labels that say things like "whore by night", "I like barbecued babies", and "Democrat killer" and then sticking them on the backs of strangers.


Lastly, how sad is it when a favorite pair of shoes become stinky? It sucks! I am just nearing the end of the life of a favorite pair of Winter shoes. By "Winter shoes" I mean a pair that is closed toe and only appropriate when it's not warm outside. I also own many pairs of Summer shoes, meaning those that are sandal-like in nature, or generally open-toed. But anyway, these shoes have been worn so much over the last year that they are officially worn out and smell like a good piece of aged Wisconsin blue cheese.

R.I.P. favorite Winter Shoes!


  1. my new word of the day. When someone asks how I am, I'm gonna say "Meh"

  2. Dr. Scholls will extent the life of the shoes - get the charcoal kind.

    LOL cats can be funny at times.....sometimes they're meh

  3. You could print a label that says "cheesy but still pretty" and slap it on the heel.
