It was just meh

When I considered the newest word to be added by the Collins English Dictionary, all I could bring myself to say was meh.

That’s no joke. The word meh, defined as an expression of apathy or boredom and popularized by The Simpsons, was nominated by readers for inclusion in the dictionary’s 30th anniversary edition.

A nod to Moondog for the tip, and to the ever thoughtful Fritinancy, who has a nice round up of information about the word.
