Flimsy Sanity: Meh

Flimsy Sanity

In individuals, insanity is rare; but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule. - Friedrich Nietzsche

'Meh': Apathetic expression enters dictionary

"Meh" was selected by Collins after it asked people to submit words they use in conversation that are not in the dictionary. Other suggestions included jargonaut, a fan of jargon; frenemy, an enemy disguised as a friend; and huggles, a hybrid of hugs and snuggles.

Jargonaut gets my vote, who hasn't been a victim of these bullshitters. Frenemy is a great, useful word; although I wish there was one for disloyal family but maybe that is too rare to need a special word; "huggles" is stupid like "humungous" and I hope it disappears. "Meh" is annoying, but "whatever" is more irksome, so I will stick with it.
