The Collins English Dictionary has welcomed into its fray the now-real word: Meh. According to Radar, the word originated in a 2001 episode of The Simpsons, when Homer suggested Bart and Lisa do something other than watch TV and they couldn’t bring themselves to employ a real word, let alone eye contact or complete sentences. (I would have erroneously pegged “meh” to South Park, because “meh” sounds exactly like what Cartman tends to lisp instead of “me” or “my.”) Anyway, please vote (for anything but “McDreamy,” for the love of god) in our new-word poll, below. And check out the inspiration for our somewhat blurry image to your left, the amusingly vegetative compilation of “Every Simpsons Couch,” on YouTube.
