Lately, every time I begin typing “meh” as a trite response to something, I stop myself. Why? Because of what John Hodgman tweeted about the term a while back. He’s absolutely right! (If you’re not familiar with this term, read this and you’ll get a good idea.)
hodgman: Did I ever tell you people how much I hate the word “meh”? Nothing announces “I have missed the point” more than that word.
hodgman: It is the essence of blinkered Internet malcontentism. And a rejection of joy. Also: 12 hive mehs in the replies SO FAR
hodgman: By definition, it may mean disinterest (although simple silence would be a more damning and sincere response, in that case)
hodgman: But in use, it almost universally seems to signal: I am just interested enough to make one last joyless, nitpicky swipe and then disappear

I do still think the t-shirts are kinda funny, though.
