Millennials aren’t interested in what they aren’t interested in. And they have an expression for it: “meh.” There’s no mystery where “meh” comes from. It was expressed, and even spelt out, in episodes of The Simpsons, which could be considered the ultimate Millennial TV show. At first, when the Simpson daughter, Lisa, used it in 1992, it was hardly more than a mutter, but it was used again from time to time and in a 2001 episode she spelt it out, dignifying it as a word and not just a sound.
Homer: Kids, how would you like to go to Blockoland?
Bart and Lisa: Meh.
Homer: But the TV gave the impression that…
Bart: We said meh.
Lisa: M-E-H. Meh.
