That other disinterested grunt

or to put it another way “meh” is the new “feh.”

We love the expression “feh.” It’s an acknowledgment of activity with no element of approval. It’s like a sigh without the emotion, a scowl without the anger, a turn-and-walk away that can happen when you’re miles apart.

But tonight we found a new expression on the message boards at Simply Syndicated, one which threatens to replace “feh” as our signature noise: “meh.”

The subtle difference here is the suggestion of contemplation or near approval in the “m” sound. Not quite “hmmm, yeah”… it falls short and offers that same blandness “feh” provides with a bit of tease in front.

Clearly we have too much time on or hands here at that other page.
