What Does MEH Mean?MEH is an expression of indifference or disdain.
The expression MEH (pronounced like "mare") is an expression of complete indifference or disdain. It is a verbal shrug of the shoulders, similar to expressions such as "whatever."
MEH is typically used in response to a question or statement. It shows disinterest or disapproval and is rarely accompanied by further explanation, as the speaker (or sender) is not interested or engaged enough in the conversation to "waste" more words on the subject that has been mentioned. For example:
- Tony: What do you think of the new Star Wars movie?
- Jordan: MEH.
- Sam: How was your lunch?
- Jo: MEH.
- Ali: BTS are doing a tour of the US next year.
- Chris: MEH.
In December 2009, BBC News produced a "portrait" of the first decade of the twenty-first century, which included MEH as one of the top twenty words that defined the noughties/aughts.
