Apathy news?… who cares?

Yahoo news reports:

The expression of indifference or boredom has gained a place in the Collins English Dictionary after generating a surprising amount of enthusiasm among lexicographers.

The origins of “meh” are murky, but the term grew in popularity after being used in a 2001 episode of “The Simpsons” in which Homer suggests a day trip to his children Bart and Lisa.

The dictionary defines “meh” as an expression of indifference or boredom, or an adjective meaning mediocre or boring. Examples given by the dictionary include “the Canadian election was so meh.”

Canada has elections? I always thought they just took turns deciding things or some other idealistic nonsense system of government. Plus I heard they came up with a submarine with a screen door, hosers!
