As a citizen of the internet it is my duty (nay my responsibility!) to crap all over everything. That said, Will Forte and Kristen Wiig are hilarious and I'll watch anything they do. Suck on that, meh-sayers!

Meh (pronounced like the "me" in medal or message) is an interjection, often accompanied (in person, anyway) by a shrug of the shoulders, used to signal that one is bored by, or apathetic or indifferent to, something. It entered the lexicon via The Simpsons TV show (the earliest usage coming in a 1994 episode), and has even made it into at least one dictionary.
