Neologisms, it is said, engender linguistic evolution. "Meh" just may be the next step forward! [Razz]

Any word can become annoying when abused; in this case, that would be any useage which forms a proper subset of a simple sentence.

In its proper role as a simple interjection, however, I feel that "meh" has few equals and no superior for sheer expressiveness in articulating pure, unalloyed indifference.

I'm not normally like this, but then I'm not normally normal.
